Portales biofuel plant restarting after 2 years


PORTALES, N.M. (AP)--A biofuels plant in Portales is restarting after being shuttered for nearly two years.

The 47 workers employed at the Abengoa Bioenergy USA plant will produce 25 million gallons of ethanol a year for blending with gasoline.

A statement from Roosevelt County Community Development Corporation Executive Director Greg Fisher says a renewed biofuel tax credit was a key reason the plant was able to resume operations.

The Portales News-Tribune reports that the plant uses dryland sorghum to produce the ethanol and sells the left over plant material as cattle feed.
