SPIRITWOOD, North Dakota — Officials with a new ethanol plant in North Dakota are out shopping for grain.

KQDJ reports that the North Dakota Public Service Commission has granted permission to Dakota Spirit Ag Energy to begin buying corn for the $150 million plant in Spiritwood.

The ethanol plant is expected to be completed by April of 2015 and the company plans to have a permanent storage facility built at Spiritwood.

The plant in the energy park will use steam from the new coal-fired plant to help produce the ethanol. It's expected to contract for five million bushels of corn.
