AGP holds ceremony for 60 MMgy biodiesel plant in Algona, Iowa

By Ron Kotrba | May 18, 2012

Ag Processing Inc. (AGP) held a ceremony May 17 for its members, celebrating the operation of its newest biodiesel asset, AGP Algona, a 60 MMgy biodiesel production facility in Algona, Iowa.

The plant, formerly East Fork Biodiesel LLC, started up in 2007 and shut down shortly afterwards, remaining idled for years. Enervation Advisors bought the plant in March 2011 and sold it to AGP months later.

John Campbell, senior vice president of renewable fuels for AGP, told Biodiesel Magazine that AGP opened the plant last fall. The facility uses soybean oil feedstock.

AGP’s total biodiesel production capacity is now 120 MMgy.
