A company executive says a better market has led to the reopening of an ethanol plant in Aurora. Aventine Renewable Energy Inc. has reopened its Vogelbusch Energy plant that had been sitting idle since 2012. Aventine President and CEO Mark Beemer says that the reopening was a result of the market. Corn prices have been hovering around $3.50 a bushel, compared with nearly $8 a bushel in August 2012.
