AltEn Facility Remediation Response – Explanatory Posters

AltEn vacated its ethanol production facility in Mead in 2021. Since that time, the AltEn Facility Response Group (FRG) has been voluntarily working, under the direction of the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE), to stabilize the site and develop Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) for the water and the solids remaining on-site. These posters explain the work that has been accomplished to date as well as details specifics of the Solid Waste Pilot Project.
