Major Biodiesel Plant Headed for Kentucky

John Davis

A 60-million-gallon-a-year biodiesel plant is slated for Paducah, Kentucky, scheduled to be finished in three years.

This story on the KFVS-TV web site says Southland Renewable Fuel will build the plant:

McCracken County, the City of Paducah, Paducah-McCracken Riverport Authority and the Greater Paducah Economic Development Council announced the plans Tuesday.

The plant will use an environmentally friendly “waterless wash” process that emits “virtually” no air emissions to create clean-burning alternative fuel.

It’s the first large-scale biodiesel plant in western Kentucky.

The plant will also produce six million gallons of glycerin each year.
