NSW Govt sets conditions for planned ethanol plant

The company behind a proposed ethanol and dairy development in south-west New South Wales is considering the development conditions before making any public comment.

Four Arrows plans to build an ethanol plant at Coleambally capable of producing 300 million litres of fuel a year.

The by-product of distilled grain will be used in a massive dairy operation producing 77 million litres of milk annually.

It is proposed 18,000 thousand head of cattle will be housed in sheds.

The New South Wales Government has approved the company's application for the $100 million project, but has imposed strict conditions relating to groundwater protection and odour control.

The development is expected to create 100 full-time positions and 150 jobs during the construction phase.
