Safe Renewables supplies biodiesel for power plant
Oct 25, 2007 4:17 PM
Safe Renewables Corp, a producer and marketer of biodiesel for transportation fuel and power generation, has begun supplying fuel for a biodiesel-powered electricity generating turbine plant in Conroe TX.
The plant, owned and operated by Biofuels Power Corp and located on Safe Renewables's property, will produce up to 10 megawatts of electricity for delivery direct to the grid, Safe Renewables said.
Biodiesel is a clean burning, environmentally friendly alternative fuel made from oils derived from farm crops and animal fats. SRC will supply up to one million gallons per month of biodiesel (B100) for the plant. The feedstock will primarily be poultry fat, sourced from large poultry processing operations in Texas.
SRC uses a proprietary process that is capable of switching among multiple vegetable oil and animal fat feedstocks. Earlier in 2007, the company began supplying biodiesel for the power company's five-megawatt test plant using generators. That plant provides power to Oak Ridge North, a suburb of Houston near the biodiesel facility.
