April 2, 2018 |

In North Dakota, Agweek reports that Red Trail Energy’s ethanol plant in Richardson leaked 8,484 gallons of ethanol, about 202 barrels, due to a transfer valve on a hose being left partially open by accident. The leak, identified Thursday and likely to have started Wednesday, did not likely cause any environmental damage due to its location on the site and being caught quickly.  The state’s health department was monitoring the leak on site just in case.
