French company building world's largest biodiesel plant in Indiana

The Indianapolis Star is reporting that French agribusiness giant Louis Dreyfus Corp. is about to begin construction of the world's largest biodiesel plant near Claypool, Indiana.

The facility combines a soybean processing plant with a biodiesel production plant, turning about 50 million bushels of soybeans a year into 1 million tons of animal feed and 80 million gallons of biodiesel.

Two other biodiesel plants and six ethanol plants are also under construction in Indiana.
