Missouri’s sixth ethanol plant – the Show Me Ethanol facility in Carrollton – is up and running and on the road to producing 55-million gallons of ethanol annually. The official opening was held over the weekend, but plant General Manager Greg Thomas says work has been going on since May 23rd.
This newest ethanol plant is not associated with the other five, but it is a home-grown enterprise. Thomas says it is owned by a separate group of investors – all Missouri-based – which includes farmers and community members in Carrollton and Carroll County.
Show Me employs 35 full time and 2 part time employees.
