The Iowa Bioprocessing Center
The IBC . . . . The Northeast corner of Monroe County is home to what the state has dubbed, the "Iowa Bioprocessing Center". It is a unique, multi-national partnership of leading bioprocessing operations that have led to over $1.4 billion in announced capital investment since 1985. Anchored by Cargill, Inc., the firms produce a multitude of products from Iowa corn and soybeans through bioprocessing.
New Industrial Park . . .
Construction was completed in the Fall of 2005 on a new 240 acre industrial park adjacent to the Iowa Bioprocessing Center.
The cooperative effort between Monroe County, Cargill, the Economic Development Administration, the Iowa Department of Transportation and AIDC paved two roads and create flexible lot sizes (10 - 80 acres) on Cargill-owned land. Click on the 2005 aerial to the right for a detailed layout of the park.

Transportation . . .
With a semi arriving at Cargill's corn dump every 2.4 minutes, an excellent transportation system has been vital to the growth of the area.
A new 4-lane interstate is under construction from Des Moines to Burlington that passes less than a mile from the IBC. A new three-lane bridge over the Des Moines River was completed in the fall of 2005 and numerous intersection and turn lane improvements are near completion as as spring arrives.
Our outstanding transportation system has been one of our strongest advantages.
