M.E.L.P.

The Mulberry Ethanol Facility was built by Polk Power Partners in 1994. Designed as a Thermal Host for the Mulberry Cogeneration Facility. This is the first "zero discharge"  Ethanol Plant. It was to produce 6.5 million gallons of fuel grade ethanol per year from grain. Built at a cost of over 40 million dollars, the plant has never operated as designed.
