Owensboro Planning for Biodiesel Plant in Kentucky

Owensboro, Kentucky [Associated Press] A 50-million gallon biodiesel plant is planned for western Kentucky, and officials hope to have it in full operation by mid-2007. The plant is a multi-million dollar project by Owensboro Grain with help from a grant from the Kentucky Agriculture Development Board and a low-interest loan from the Agriculture Finance Corp. … The plant, which officials said will employ between 10 and 15 people, will use vegetable oil from soybeans grown in Kentucky and the area for biodiesel production, officials said. Kentucky produces about 54 million bushels of soybeans annually with 11 pounds of oil processed from each bushel.
