ALBANY, GA (WALB) - You can expect to see more corn coming into southwest Georgia by railcar as south Georgia's first ethanol plant goes online.

FUEL's Ethanol plant in Mitchell County was scheduled to begin production Thursday afternoon. The plant is expected to use 36 million bushels of corn a year once it begins full production. The idea for the plant came about in 2005 because of high fuel prices, which were much less than they are now.

The plant is expected to employ as many as 60 workers. Ethanol made in Mitchell County will be sent to terminals in Bainbridge, Albany, and Montgomery, Alabama.
