Renewable diesel plant in La. nearly complete

Construction of the 75-MMgy Dynamic Fuels renewable diesel plant in Geismar, La., not far from Baton Rouge, is nearing completion, according to Jeff Bigger, Syntroleum Corp.'s senior vice president and director of the Dynamic Fuels management committee.
