Complaints are growing of reported health problems while Nebraska officials attempt to close an ethanol plant that makes fuel from seeds treated with pesticides.


The plant near Mead, Nebraska is owned by AltEn and has become an environmental disaster according to residents who live nearby.


While most ethanol is produced using corn, AltEn has been using corn seed that is coated in systemic pesticides since at least 2018 reported Civil Eats.
