K-State and Scoular Partner for Crush Facility

Cindy Zimmerman

A partnership between Kansas State University and Scoular will provide Kansas farmers with a canola and soybean crush facility to help create a renewable fuel market for oilseed on the Great Plains.

Scoular plans to renovate a grain processing facility near Goodland that it purchased in 2021 to crush canola and soybean seeds for use as renewable fuel feedstock. The recommissioned facility will add 40 new jobs to the Goodland area and provide access to the renewable fuels market. Scoular will also help with transportation flow by intaking and exporting product through its already-established process for loading and unloading railcars and trucks. The Goodland facility will be upgraded to improve dumping speeds and boost traffic circulation. Through these efforts, the company will be directly helping farmers.
