Lift that barge

Posted By on Sat, Sep 9, 2006 at 10:22 AM

Good news in the Delta is worth a plug isn't it? Planters Service and Sales announced today that it is coverting a former fertilizer plant on the Mississippi south of Helena into a biodiesel facility to produce 40 million gallons a year under the name Delta American Fuels. Construction should take 40 to 44 weeks. Soybean oil will be the main fuel source.

(By the way, the Huckster speaks warmly here of renewable fuels -- in Iowa.)
 

When functional, the plant will operate around the clock and employ 50 to 60 people.
