Cargill, Missouri Soy Association to expand biodiesel plant in Kansas


Cargill, Inc. and the Missouri Soy Association (MSA) have announced its expansion plans of Paseo biodiesel plant in Kansas, Missouri to increase biodiesel output by 40%.


The MSA and Cargill are investors in Paseo Biofuels, LLC. Using soyoil as its primary feedstock, the facility, which opened in 2008, produces 40 million gallons of biodiesel and 30 million pounds of food-grade glycerin annually. The expansion is expected to be completed by March 2013.


"Our partnership with Paseo has gone very well over last four years. Together, we have built an excellent operation that serves many of the major petroleum retailers in the US," said Cargill Grain and Oilseed Supply Chain North America Business Unit Leader, Mark Stonacek.


"The business model has been ideal. Co-locating the biodiesel plant next to a soy crushing facility reduces cost, saves time and money while working with three great partners," said Dale R. Ludwig, Executive Director/CEO Missouri Soy Association.
