US BioEnergy has announced that its Albert City and Central City ethanol plants began operations in late November and have transitioned to commercial production. With these plants in commercial production, US BioEnergy is the largest pure-play ethanol producer in the United States. US Bio Albert City is a new facility located near Albert City, Iowa and US Bio Platte Valley is a newly expanded facility in Central City, Nebraska.

Each facility is expected to produce approximately 100 million gallons of ethanol per year, 320,000 tons of distillers grains per year and employ about 45 people.

"This is an important milestone for our company and to the revitalization of the American heartland," said Gordon Ommen, CEO and chairman. "It's the spirit and dedication of the American farmer that's making this possible."

B-52 Undergoes Synthetic-Fuel Cold Weather Testing At Minot
Minot AFB (SPX) Jan 23, 2007
A B-52 Stratofortess powered by a mix of synthetic fuel arrived here Jan. 17 for cold-weather testing, the last step in the testing and certification process to help reduce Air Force dependence on imported fuel. The aircraft, permanently assigned to the 5th Bomb Wing here, will undergo ground testing today through the beginning of February to determine how well the synthetic fuel, made from a 50-50 blend of traditional crude oil-based fuel and a Fischer-Tropsch fuel derived from natural gas, performs in extreme weather conditions.
