Plans announced for nation's first "energy beet" biofuel plant in Red River Valley

Green Vision Group, the company behind the project, said Monday it's work-ing to build a demonstration plant to convert beets into ethanol. It would be the first such plant in the nation. No site has been identified yet for the project, which would cost about $5 million.
