Greenyug building ethyl acetate plant, hiring 20 in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Neb. — A California chemical company plans to build a plant in Columbus, Nebraska, to make ethyl acetate, a solvent used to decaffeinate coffee and clean circuit boards and used in paint, perfumes, nail polish, pharmaceuticals and other products.

Greenyug LLC, a privately owned company based in Santa Barbara, said recently that it would build the plant adjacent to a corn ethanol plant run by Archer Daniel Midlands. Construction is to start late this year. Production is to be underway about a year later.

Greenyug Vice President Luca Zullo said the plant would employ about 20 full-time people, half a dozen of them on salaries and the rest earning competitive hourly wages. Check for Greenyug jobs here.
