CLARKS, Neb. — The Strobel Energy Group is working with Prairie Catalytic, a subsidiary of energy tech company Greenyug LLC, to build a new bio-ethanol
to ethyl acetate facility in Columbus, Neb., Strobel representatives recently announced.

The Prairie Catalytic production site will be located adjacent to an existing Archer Daniels Midland corn processing plant, which will provide the facility with bio-ethanol feedstock and other products. The Ethyl acetate will then be used in products such as paints, coatings, pharmaceuticals, adhesives, and other consumer goods.

The company has already started its engineering phase and will start building the facility during the third quarter. It is expected to open sometime in 2018.

The new facility will access to Union Pacific's mainline between North Platte, Neb., and Omaha, Neb., as well as BNSF Railway-operated tracks running southeast from Columbus.
