BQ-9000 welcomes new producer

By | September 18, 2009
High Plains Bioenergy, the newest BQ-9000 producer, calls Guymon, Okla., home and opened in March 2008. The company is a subsidiary of Seaboard Foods and reports the 30 MMgy biodiesel plant uses animal fats, including pork fat from its parent company's local processing plant, and vegetable oils as feedstock for biodiesel.

Vice President Gary Louis said producing high-quality biodiesel is among High Plains Bioenergy's baseline objectives.

"Achieving BQ-9000 Producer status is just one of many goals we have achieved in our effort to continually improve our process so that we can consistently produce biodiesel that will perform for our customers," Louis said. "BQ-9000 certification provides our customers further validation of High Plains Bioenergy's commitment to producing consistent, high-quality biodiesel. The BQ-9000 program is not only important to High Plains Bioenergy but we feel it is a critical program that will promote the commercial success and public acceptance of biodiesel." Louis also noted that some customers work exclusively with BQ-9000 certified producers.

The National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission also recertified BQ-9000 Producer status for AGP, Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, and Sun Products, Pasadena, Texas. Recertification is good for a three-year term and affirms companies continue to meet the high standards defined by the BQ-9000 program.
