Big Bang at Bio Plant Site
The explosion heard in the Hopewell area just before midnight Wednesday was at the Appomattox Bio Energy Plant.
Osage Bio Energy calls it an “operational incident” at the ethanol plant that it’s building. No word on exactly what kind of incident it was.
No injuries were reported, according to a company statement, and the cause is being investigated. The parts of the plant not impacted by the explosion were in operation yesterday. The damaged area is temporarily shut down.
