Brawley Biofuel Facility to Build in Mid-2021, Receives Loan Extension
IMPERIAL — Groundwork is underway on a biomass and biofuel facility about midway between Imperial and Brawley just outside the Mesquite Lake Enterprise Zone off Keystone Road.
California Ethanol + Power’s Sugar Valley Energy project proposed for 136 E. Keystone Road, Brawley, is expected to produce 68 million gallons of low-carbon, fuel-grade ethanol, 40 megawatts of electricity, and 737,000 cubic feet (737 MCF) of biomethane.
The 160-acre project is set to begin construction sometime in mid-2021.
“We are now virtually at the goal line and have carefully budgeted every dollar to where it’s best accelerating the remainder of the pre-development phase,” said David Rubenstein, president and chief executive officer of California Ethanol + Power.
