Co-op renames ethanol plant

The ethanol plant at Belle Plaine, Sask., has a new name, nearly two years after new owners took over.

The former Terra Grain Fuels plant is now the Co-op Ethanol Complex to align it with the Federated Co-operatives Ltd. brand.

FCL bought the 150-million-litre per year facility in June 2019. It employs 47 full-time workers and contributes between $80 million and $110 million annually to the economy, the company said in a news release.

The ethanol is blended with gasoline at the Co-op Refinery Complex in Regina and distributed to more than 620 communities in Western Canada.

The CEC uses about 350,000 tonnes of feedstock, including wheat, corn, rye and triticale, from 400 western Canadian farmers .
