Marquis Energy embarks on a sustainability project to revitalize our natural environment

Marquis Energy is proud to embark on another sustainability project to strengthen the local community and revitalize the natural environment.

Just south of Hennepin, IL, lies a nearly 3,000-acre wetlands preserve site, joining Hickory Hollow with the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge. This land is being restored through added vegetation and wildlife, as well as a new trail.

Marquis Energy provided the funds to create a new nature trail within the restored habitat.

This trail showcases the original vegetation, rare birds and wildlife in the area and the restored areas with added fish in the streams and additional planted vegetation.

“This trail provides access to a peaceful sanctuary where locals can visit to enjoy nature,” says Mark Marquis, CEO of Marquis Energy. “I am proud to be part of sustaining the natural beauty of the Illinois Valley.”

Marquis is dedicated to providing a cleaner Earth, by producing clean-burning, high-octane fuel that replaces harmful carcinogens found in gasoline.

Marquis Energy remains committed to bettering the community through service and producing homegrown ethanol for cleaner air and more affordable fuel.

With a production capacity of one million gallons of fuel grade ethanol per day, Marquis Energy is the largest dry-mill biofuels processing facility in the United States.
