Indiana to build one of the world’s largest biodiesel plants
Washington, D.C. – Indiana governor Mitch Daniels has announced that Louis Dreyfus Agriculture Industries plans to build one of the world’s largest biodiesel plants near Claypool, Indiana. The plant will ultimately produce up to 946,350 litres of biodiesel per day, or more than 302 million litres per year.
With two other biodiesel and six ethanol plants currently under construction, Indiana will become a leading producer of biofuels. Indiana is the fifth-largest corn-growing state and the fourth-largest soybean producer.
