Another plant from the same builder
Lurgi PSI, Inc., of Memphis, Tennessee, designed and built the plant in Lena, Illinois and has been commissioned to design and build the one in Valley City.
This means that the Valley City plant is likely to have the same failings as the Lena plant, which has not lived up to its promises and has been embroiled in lawsuits for months. The Lena plant was completed last August and was supposed to be “state of the art,” so it is reasonable to believe our new plant will resemble this one rather than the more innocuous plant in Watertown, SD.

It also means that much of the taxpayers’ money to build the plant will be spent out of state.
