A groundbreaking took place Friday morning where the Dakota Spirit AgEnergy ethanol plant will be built near Spiritwood.
Midwest AgEnergy Group, an upper Midwest biofuels enterprise owned by Great River Energy, will build a biorefinery capable of producing 65 million gallons of ethanol, 198,000 tons of distillers grains for livestock feed and 6,900 tons of fuel-grade corn oil for use in biodiesel.  
It will buy about 23 million bushels of corn from area farmers every year and employ about 36 workers. Midwest AgEnergy Group will invest $155 million to build the plant which is expected to be in operation in the first quarter of 2015.
