ARES Corporation, a California-based engineering and research firm, has joined with Colorado-based Blue Sun Biodiesel to build a 15-million gallon/year B100 biodiesel plant under the name ARES Blue Sun near Clovis, New Mexico. They’ll break ground early this year. According to a joint company press release:
“This new joint venture represents the initial implementation of ARES’ strategic goals in creating new businesses in the clean energy and biofuels sector,” said Dick Stuart, CEO and President of ARES
“Since its inception, Blue Sun has been focused on distributing a premium biodiesel fuel with warranted industry-leading specifications. The ability to bring to bear ARES’ superior engineering expertise assures Blue Sun of a continuous supply of B100 that meets our stringent quality requirements,” added Jeff Probst,
CEO of Blue Sun Biodiesel.
While the release doesn’t directly indicate more plants, it sure implies this won’t be the only biodiesel venture for the new company.
