Green Star finishes biodiesel plant installation
Apr 23, 2008 3:23 PM
Green Star Products Inc announced that it has completed its installation of the Odessa Biodiesel Plant in Odessa WA. Green Star has also recently received the contract to complete the installation of the Odessa tank farm and associated piping.
The Odessa Project includes a 28,000 sq ft renovated flathouse with 600,000 bushel capacity silos and land with a 14-car railroad spur. The Project also includes a crushing and degumming plant, which is to be finished by late summer. The crushing equipment, including oil presses, extruders and expellers, has been purchased and delivered to the site.
Initial production capacity will be 8 million gallons of biodiesel per year. However, Green Star Products has already incorporated some of the equipment and engineering into the facility necessary to double capacity to 16 million gallons a year.
When completed, the Odessa facility will be a totally integrated biodiesel processing facility. It will incorporate its own oil seed crushing and dry-processing equipment that can take locally grown oil seeds (such as canola) and produce high-protein, hexane-free feed meal and biodiesel fuel. It will be the first facility of its kind in the western United States that won’t need to rely on volatile agricultural oil prices for its profitable operations. The Green Star design establishes a new standard for biodiesel production with extremely low energy consumption and continuous-flow process.
