Aventine Renewable Energy Holdings may soon reopen its ethanol plant in Aurora East, Neb., after resolving issues concerning the plant's fermentation system. "Our operational focus is to implement identified changes to bring the Mount Vernon plant [in Indiana] closer to full capacity," said John Castle of Aventine Renewable Energy. "Resolving new plant production issues will help us move forward with the start-up of the Aurora West facility, an identical twin of the Mount Vernon facility," he added.
