Tri-City Energy in Keokuk, Iowa, is an energy company that is running wild on biodiesel
. John Rothgeb, Tri-City Energy's general manager, told the Daily Gate City
that things are moving at "warp speed". The reason is that Tri-City Energy's biodiesel production facility has gone from production concept to start-up company to turn-key biodiesel plant in less than a year. Tri-City Energy
itself is just three months old. The biodiesel plant would be even closer to completion had Homeland Security not held up some of the plant's components at customs for a month. The plant will start making biodiesel in September. The company is also involved in building a biodiesel plant in Altoona.
