…Missouri’s first major biodiesel production plant was going to be constructed in Mexico, Mo.
Mid America Biofuels, LLC, in coordination with the Missouri Soybean Association (MSA) held a press conference outside the Audrain County Courthouse today to announce plans to build the multi-million plant in mid-Missouri.
Mid America Biofuels, LLC is a partnership of Biofuels, LLC, a Missouri farmer-owned biodiesel business; Archer Daniels Midland Company; Ray-Carroll County Grain Growers; and MFA Oil Company. The facility will use soybean oil as feedstock and carry a nameplate capacity of 30 million gallons of biodiesel production per year.
This should be great news for the local economy, and also shows that mid-Missouri is slowly becoming a bit player in renewable energy development — the Rev. Larry Rice’s Mid-America Renewable Energy Center is just down Highway 54 in New Bloomfield.
