Commissioners in Santa Rosa County, California are considering whether to use the county’s name to help back bonds for a proposed biodiesel plant.

Biofuels Digest reports the chairman of the commission wants more information before signing off on the Integrated Energy Partners’ proposed biodiesel facility:

The facility intends to run year-round using camelina and other crops including cotton seed to produce 3 million gallons of biodiesel, 353,000 gallons of cellulosic ethanol, 9 million gallons of kerosene, and propane amounting to 437,000 gallons along with 47.8 MWh of electrical energy annually.

There are also plans to use municipal and other waste products as feedstocks for fuels.
