Designing an efficient production system that meets all the environmental concerns has been a major accomplishment for our engineering and permitting staff
Madison, WI (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
BEST BioDiesel Cashton, LLC, announced today it has received a construction and operating permit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for an 8 million gallon B-100 fuel production facility. Site work and construction activities have begun and the excavation for footings and foundations are in progress. The facility is scheduled for completion by end of April, 2007, and to being commissioning in July, 2007.
BEST BioDiesel Cashton facility meets or exceeds very stringent air quality and air emissions standards established by the EPA. "Designing an efficient production system that meets all the environmental concerns has been a major accomplishment for our engineering and permitting staff," stated Tony Janowiec, Managing Member and Vice President of Operations for BEST BioDiesel Cashton. "We are pleased to confirm that our plant will meet all air emissions and water discharge standards," added Janowiec.
BEST BioDiesel Cashton Is generating both construction and permanent jobs, allowing Cashton to leverage its geographic location, attract green industries and position itself as a leader in bioenergy. BEST BioDiesel Cashton is located on a 6-acre site within the Cashton Greens Energy Park located at 111 Eagle Drive in Cashton. The final project will include a 3,500 square foot office and control center complex, laboratory, weigh scale, a 1,200,000 gallon tank farm, and a 9,600 square foot building to house the 8.0 million gallon biodiesel plant.
BEST BioDiesel Cashton's is a wholly owned subsidiary of BEST BioDiesel, Inc. The company will be the showcase for all of BEST BioDiesel's current technology and future production enhancements. BEST BioDiesel has created a distributed production template which significantly improves the efficiencies of biodiesel production through continuous flow decanting, improved washing processes, enhanced recovery of methanol, and world class process water sewer discharge levels. BEST BioDiesel's solutions increase production volume of existing facilities and decrease the footprint of new facilities, significantly reducing construction timelines and expansion costs.
BEST BioDiesel believes the future of biodiesel will be determined by the controllers of feed stocks and the creators of distributed production systems close to the source of those feed stocks. While soybean or other triglyceride-based oil will be the primary raw materials, BEST BioDiesel Cashton will be able to process a variety of feed stocks through a pretreatment system to be installed prior to commissioning the plant. This process permits the use of a more economical selection of feed stocks.
