Northern Ethanol in Niagara Falls, NY

    NIAGARA FALLS, NY, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - Northern Ethanol, LLC, a wholly owned
subsidiary of Northern Ethanol, Inc. (NOET:OTCBB), has announced that it has
entered into an agreement to acquire a 70 acre site from Praxair, Inc in
Niagara Falls on which it will locate its Niagara Falls, NY ethanol plant. The
property is well served by CSX Rail, St.Lawrence Seaway dockage, adjacent
interstate highway and abundant low cost water and other services.
    In May, the Niagara Falls Ethanol project was approved for 9,000
kilowatts of low-cost hydro-electric power from the New York Power Authority,
with a saving of approximately $35million over the life of the contract.

    About Northern Ethanol

    The Company is a public registrant under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended. Our objective is to become a low cost leader in the
production of ethanol and its co-products in industrial zoned areas. Our
initial goal is to construct three ethanol production facilities in Sarnia,
Barrie, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York each producing 400 million litres
per annum. We believe that our proximity to the Central Canadian and North
Eastern US markets will provide us with significant competitive advantages
over other ethanol producers who must incur the costs of delivering ethanol
from significant distances.
