The Soo paper http://www.sooeveningnews.com
reports that the Mascoma cellulosic ethanol plant in Kinross has the funding ready to begin construction. Output is expected to reach 40 million gallons a year. It isn't far from the CN spur to the airport so you would think that pulpwood "in" and ethanol "out" by rail is likely. This area is very much in need of jobs. The number one employer now is the prison system so let's hope some good jobs and more rail traffic come from this project that is slated for a 2013 completion date.
