Construction Begins on Animal Fat Fuel Plant

Construction begins on the plant being built by Dynamic Fuels, a joint venture of Tyson Foods and Tulsa-based Syntroleum Corp.
The $138 million Dynamic Fuels plant will convert animal fats and greases provided by Tyson into clean, renewable diesel and jet fuel.
Concrete foundations are being poured for the new facility in Geismar, La., and the project remains on budget and on schedule for startup in early 2010, the companies said in a statement. Once in operation, the new facility will use Syntroleum’s Bio-Synfining Technology to convert the animal fats and greases from Tyson into diesel and jet fuel.
