CLOVERDALE, Ind. (AP) – The owner of a western Indiana ethanol plant is blaming its shut down on the Trump administration allowing some refineries to not blend ethanol with gasoline as required under federal law. South Dakota-based ethanol producer Poet says it will cease production and cut 50 jobs by mid-October at its Cloverdale plant. Poet says it’s consolidating jobs at plants in Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Missouri.
