CASA GRANDE — Casa Grande City Council members were excited Monday night to hear the details of a new natural gas-to-gasoline production plant that is planned for the area.
Nacero Inc. is looking to build a $3.3 billion facility to convert natural gas to gasoline along Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway across from Abbott Nutrition and Frito-Lay. Members of the company’s leadership spoke with the council over a teleconference line due to concerns about the coronavirus. The city has yet to sign a development agreement or an agreement for the use of treated wastewater for the plant with Nacero.
“I think you’ve got everyone excited about the possibility and convinced that this would be a win/win,” said Councilman Dick Powell.
