Firm plans Wyoming biodiesel plant - State could be biodiesel hub

December 1, 2005View for printing

A Wyoming-based start-up company plans to build a 30 million-gallons-per-year biodiesel plant in Campbell County.

It would be the first-ever biodiesel plant in the state and among the largest in the nation. It would also create a new opportunity for Wyoming farmers to grow camelina, canola, brown mustard and other oil seed crops.

Wyoming Biodiesel Co., a subsidiary of Sheridan-based Energy Fuel Dynamics LLC, says it is working with a "strategic partner" to power the facility using waste steam. Construction could begin next spring, said business development manager Jim Kintz.

Estimated cost to build the plant is from $35 million to $40 million.

GILLETTE -- Wyoming Biodiesel Co.'s plans to build a 30 million-gallons-per-year biodiesel plant in Campbell County would make Wyoming a major marketplace hub for the fast-growing industry.

Production of biodiesel in the United States has skyrocketed since a federal excise tax credit was implemented in January, according to the National Biodiesel Board in Jefferson City, Mo.

"We estimate that in 2005, the industry will produce 75 million gallons. That's triple last year's (production), and it's the biggest growth the industry has ever seen," said Jenna Higgins, spokeswoman for the National Biodiesel Board.

Wyoming has no tax incentives specifically targeting biodiesel production.
