MP Joe Preston, the member from the riding of
Elgin-Middlesex-London, rose in the House of Commons to congratulate IGPC on
the production of its one-billionth litre of ethanol:
“Mr. Speaker, I want to celebrate the successes of this
Conservative government's renewable fuels strategy.
In my riding of Elgin—Middlesex—London, the Integrated Grain
Processors Co-operative very recently produced its one-billionth litre of
ethanol. IGPC Ethanol Inc. began producing fuel ethanol in October 2008.
Located in the town of Aylmer, IGPC produces 150 million litres of ethanol
annually. The distiller's grains, which are a co-product of ethanol
manufacturing, feed area beef, dairy, and pork operations. This bio-refinery
provides a local market for grains and employs over 50 people in my riding.”
