Biodiesel from the Heartland

Cindy Zimmerman

Another sweetheart of a story for the day after St. Valentine’s.
Heartland Biodiesel is the name of a group of Missouri farmer-investors planning to build a biodiesel plant in Rock Port, MO. According to an AP report, the northwest Missouri plant will cost $40 million to $45 million to build and will employ about 28 people, producing roughly 30 million gallons of biodiesel per year.
“Renewable energy – that’s what everybody’s talking about,” said Kent Fisher, of Fairfax, vice president of the group’s board of directors.

The group’s website is under construction at and they have no logo available as yet.
