Corn Grinding for Va. Ethanol Plant to Begin Soon

A partner in a revived ethanol plant in Hopewell plans to begin grinding corn for the operation soon.

Scoular Company will procure corn, operate grain facilities on the site and market a major byproduct.

The Progress-Index reports that Scoular is in the process of buying corn and obtaining contracts.

Scoular is partnering with Vireol Bio Energy LLC, which plans to invest $26.2 million to begin production at the plant. The operation will create 72 jobs.

Osage Bio Energy completed the plant but decided to abandon it because of unfavorable market conditions.
