East Kansas Agri-Energy LLC plans to integrate renewable diesel production at its ethanol plant in Garnett, Kan., using distillers corn oil from the ethanol process and other feedstocks, the company announced in late July. WB Services is the integration and renewable diesel technology provider for the project. Construction on the 3 MMgy co-located renewable diesel plant is slated to begin soon and is expected to be completed in 12 to 14 months.

“This is about maximizing revenue, leveraging activities that we already do every day, and enhancing the value of products we already produce now,” says EKAE President and CEO Jeff Oestmann. “Adding renewable diesel capability aligns perfectly with our business strategy of diversifying our energy portfolio and creating additional enterprises that are sustainable on their own.”
