New Large-Scale Biodiesel Plant Slated For Alberta, Canada, to Use Canola Resources
The 70- million-gallon biodiesel plant, located next to the company's existing canola crushing facility in Lloydminster. will help optimize ADM's agricultural origination, transportation and processing assets in Canada.
"The same agricultural processing operations we use to transform canola into oil for food and meal for animal feed also provide ADM with the ability and scale to efficiently produce cleaner-burning, renewable biodiesel," said Mike Livergood, ADM vice president, global oleo chemicals. "This new biodiesel facility will help support canola crush margins and capacity utilization at this facility."
Biodiesel produced at ADM's facility in Lloydminster will help fulfill Canada's renewable diesel mandate. Since July 1, 2011, all diesel fuel and heating oil sold in Canada must contain at least 2 percent biodiesel.
"Biodiesel represents a smart investment for ADM and for Canada," said J.P. Montalvo, commercial manager at ADM's Lloydminster facility. "A robust Canadian biodiesel industry diversifies the fuel supply, provides environmental benefits and fosters increased local demand for canola, which creates value for rural communities. We look forward to working with canola producers to help meet Canada's desire for renewable biodiesel."
