Syngest to discuss biomass-to-ammonia plans

Syngest, the San-Francisco-based firm that proposes to make anhydrous ammonia fuel and fertilizer from corn cobs, will hold two public informational meetings in Guthrie County, Iowa this week. Those meetings will be held Tuesday night at the Guthrie Center Activities Center and Wednesday evening at the Menlo Community Building.  Both start at 7:00 p.m.

Syngest CEO Jack Oswald says the company is proceeding with plans for a biomass-to-ammonia plant near Menlo, 45 miles west of Des Moines.  “We’ve already begun the process of pre-planning for construction,” Oswald says. “If things go according to the plan, we’ll be in the first stages of site preparation this fall and begin hard construction at the first thaw of 2010.”

Oswald says the Menlo plant could be the first of many such plants in the Midwest.
