New Biodiesel Facility for Kentucky

10/17/2007
Southland Renewable Fuel, LLC, plans to construct a state-of-the-art biodiesel manufacturing facility in the new Riverport West Industrial Park in Paducah, Ky. The company will use the latest technology - which utilizes an environmentally friendly "waterless wash" process, with virtually no air emissions - to create clean-burning alternative fuel. The facility will process 60 million gallons of fuel and six million gallons of pharmaceutical grade glycerin annually. This will be the first large-scale biodiesel facility in western Kentucky. Phase I of the construction represents a $60 million capital investment and 25 employees. Phase II consists of an additional $40 million capital investment and 40 more employees, as well as the addition of a tank farm and crushing facility. Both phases are expected to be completed within three years.
