A central Nebraska ethanol plant is temporarily shutting down because of the unfavorable market for the corn-based fuel.

Abengoa spokesman Chris Standlee says the plant has about 50 workers but no decision about continued staffing has been made. He says market conditions will determine when the plant reopens.

Abengoa operates a plant in York, which also will temporarily shut down.

Steve Sorum is ethanol projects manager for the Nebraska Ethanol Board. He says a few other Nebraska ethanol plants also are operating sporadically. He says a plant at Sutherland didn't process any fuel at all last year.
