WINNEBAGO, Minn. (KEYC) - An ethanol facility in Winnebago that has been shuttered since September 2019 will open once again, now under new ownership.

Canada’s largest fuel ethanol producer Greenfield Global announcing the acquisition of Corn Plus in Winnebago. Greenfield says it believes the acquisition will enhance the company’s ability to service low-carbon fuel markets more effectively and efficiently. Greenfield Global purchased the Corn Plus facility in a receivership process. The company expects to produce fuel ethanol and its co-products once a startup plan is established. Before it closed, Corn Plus produced 48 million gallons of ethanol per year.
