New Biodiesel Plant

We just had a Biodiesel plant open up here, they are going to produce a million gallons a year.

Do you have to change anything out to run it?

I thought it was supposed to be a cheaper alternative, they are saying it will be 10 to 15 cents more expensive????

I have a close relative that manufactures plants that produce E85 and bio plants. According to him bio-diesel is very expensive to produce and that is what is preventing more plants from opening up.

Here's the company:

He's a project manager and claims ethanol plants are really taking off. Bio diesel is just to darn expensive to produce right now for investers to jump on board. I beleive him - he's been doing this for 15 years.

If the price of diesel keeps going up like it has been it will be cheaper by this winter.
