IRVINE, Ca. (WTVA) -- A bio-fuel company with plans to build a plant in Fulton has changes the design plan for the site.
BlueFire Renewables officials say they intend to build a wood pellet processing plant next to a proposed ethanol production facility.
BlueFire officials say the the reconfigured design includes a nine-million gallon per year ethanol plant and a 400,000 ton per year wood pellet facility.
The pellets will be sold under contracts to European markets.
Company officials say the restructure provides a more robust economic model with a significant increase in projected revenue.
BlueFire officials began looking at Fulton for the possible location of the plant in 2009.
The company cleared the land and was set to begin work, but construction stalled in 2011 while the company worked to raise funding.
A company news release announcing the redesign did not set a timeframe to begin construction.
