October 6, 2011 |

In Minnesota, Corn Plus, an ethanol cooperative that produces 49 million gallons of ethanol per year, is accused of reporting that its pollution-control equipment was working when company officials allegedly knew it was not.
Corn Plus was charged in federal court with violating the Clean Air Act.

The Company pleaded guilty two years ago to a misdemeanor charge of negligently releasing polluted water into Rice Lake. It also paid $861,000 to settle water-pollution charges following alleged violations between 2006 and 2008.
