High Plains Bioenergy (HPB), a subsidiary of Seaboard Foods, announced plans Sept. 15 to increase its biodiesel production through the recent acquisition of a plant in St. Joseph, Mo.
Operating as HPB–St. Joe Biodiesel, the plant will use regionally sourced feedstocks and will focus on lower cloud point specifications. The facility is currently in production, and product is available for sale by truck and rail. When the plant reaches full production capacity, it will produce 28 million gal. annually.
"The growth of the biodiesel industry over the past decade has been tremendous. With the addition of HPB Biodiesel–St. Joe, we are expanding our geographical footprint and adding value to customers by offering an integrated approach to our sales and marketing paradigm," said Gene Binder, HPB director of sales and business development.
In addition to biodiesel production, HPB operations include biogas generation through anaerobic digestion of waste water and compressed natural gas facilities.
