Baystate Biofuels LLC is taking the final steps necessary to officially open its doors and start delivering a green energy, petroleum alternative to the region. Construction of the biodiesel terminal in North Andover MA will begin by end of May 2009 with product ready to sell by summerís end.
The North Andover terminal will be the first full-scale commercial facility dedicated to biodiesel distribution in Massachusetts. This terminal has 350,000 gallons of storage capacity in two aboveground tanks. Baystate will distribute B99.9 biodiesel to oil companies to blend with petroleum diesel for use in automobiles and with home heating oil as required by the stateís Clean Energy Biofuels Act of 2008. The firm will be able to compete yearlong with retail prices of diesel and winter wholesale prices of heating oil.
Using biodiesel as opposed to petroleum products reportedly reduces greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 78.5%. Access www.baystatebiofuels.com for further details.
