A farming family in Ohio is broadening their energy circle by starting up their own biodiesel plant. Sometime before the end of March, PK Biodiesel will start making pure biodiesel at a rate of five to six million gallons a year, mostly from soybeans. The plant, owned by the Purdy and Kohler families, celebrated its grand opening a week ago. The company was started in the fall of 2005. The Purdy farmers have been working the land in Ohio for decades (over five decades total experience, according to the PK Biodiesel site).
One of PK Biodiesel's main goals is to make top-shelf biofuel. The company claims its biodiesel will meet ASTM D6751 standards and the plant is supposed to be BQ-9000 accredited in the future.
