Big Ox Energy to Build Building in South Sioux City; Brings in Local Jobs

Posted:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE -
Most of us know you can purify dirty water and make it clean.

But how about using it to create natural gas?

That unusual sounding process is soon going to take place in South Sioux City.

A Wisconsin-based green energy company known as Big Ox Energy is building a $45 million dollar bio-energy facility there.

The plant will break ground this summer in the Roth Industrial Park.

It will use a special process to treat wastewater, a process that creates natural gas that will be back into the pipeline system.

City officials say this partnership is another step towards becoming more environmentally friendly.

"And I think that we could be one of the greenest communities around. We really think we could be a model for others," said Kelly Flynn, director of economic development.
 
The Big Ox plant will also give South Sioux city and local businesses a sustainable and less expensive way to treat wastewater.

The project is 100 percent privately financed and will create 30 full time jobs when it's done in January of 2016.
