Local Company to Build First Ethanol Plant Using Sugar Cane as Feedstock
A Manhattan Beach company is attempting to build the first-ever ethanol plant in the U.S. that uses sugar cane as feedstock.
“We will be producing the lowest-carbon ethanol at commercial scale in the U.S.,” said David Rubenstein, California Ethanol and Power’s chief executive. “We will be supplying into the California market the ethanol that helps fuel companies meet the state’s low-carbon fuel standard.”
