CASSELTON, N.D. (AP) -- Equipment problems at the Tharaldson Ethanol plant at Casselton have been fixed and company Vice President Russ Newman says the plant should be running at full capacity within weeks.

It has been running at less than half capacity because of dryer equipment problems that surfaced last fall.

Newman says a new drying system has been installed, and the plant should be fully operational by early February.

The plant employs 45 people and can produce more than 100 million gallons of ethanol annually.
