America’s biggest biodiesel plant opens

biodieselWashington State is the proud parent of what it reckons is the country’s biggest-yet biodiesel production facility–capable of handling some 100 million gallons of the stuff a year.

The facility is sited on a 12-acre parcel of land at the Port of Grays Harbor, Washington. The production facility has the capacity to produce up to 100 million gallons of biodiesel fuel, and is capable of storing up to 17 million gallons of biodiesel and feedstocks (the oil that is used to produce biodiesel) at any one time.
