Victory Renewables opens biodiesel blending facility in Kansas

By Ron Kotrba | June 28, 2019

An open house was held June 25 in Garden City, Kansas, to celebrate Victory Renewables’ new biodiesel blending facility. The site stores both diesel and biodiesel fuels, allowing suppliers to load biodiesel in concentrations of 5 to 100 percent. The biodiesel offered at the new Victory Renewables blending facility is sourced from BQ-9000-certified producers, assuring high-quality biodiesel.

“The facility can accommodate inbound and outbound product movements by both rail and truck,” Kevin Hershner, senior vice president with Victory Renewables, told Biodiesel Magazine. We utilize inline blending but will offer splash blends if our customers prefer to provide their own diesel supply.”

The Kansas soybean checkoff provided infrastructure grants to help make biodiesel blends available in the west-southwest part of the state. Given soybean oil’s large market share of U.S. biodiesel feedstock, and the economic boost biodiesel production brings to farming communities, the Kansas Soybean Commission prioritizes developing biodiesel production and distribution throughout the state.

Representatives from Victory Renewables, KSC and MEG Corp. were on-site to answer questions.

Victory Renewables is a wholly owned subsidiary of Conestoga Energy Holdings, which was acquired in March 2017 and rebranded from VicNRG to Victory Renewables. The new biodiesel blending facility is located on leased space at Bonanza BioEnergy, a 55 MMgy ethanol plant owned by Conestoga Energy. The address is 2810 E US Highway 50 in Garden City, Kansas.
