Ohio's First Ethanol Plants On Schedule To Open Next Year

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's first ethanol plants should be up and running soon. State officials say that by next year, five plants around the state will be making the corn-based fuel.

The five plants under construction are in Allen, Coshocton, Darke, Fayette and Putnam counties. They are expected to crate about 330 jobs.

Most of the ethanol from Ohio's plants will be blended into regular gasoline.
