So, all you want to do is take turkey byproducts and process them into fuel oil, but the smell keeps escaping and bothering the neighbors. This is the problem with a " powerful stench" that has been emanating from a biofuel plant in Missouri. The plant has been the source of odor complaints for months and was the subject of a deal between plant and state officials in May. The lawsuits ended then, but the smells did not. Renewable Environmental Solutions, the plant's operator, agreed to pay a $100,000 fine, and $25,000 each time the state cites the plant for an odor violation for the next two years. A notice was recently served to the plant that another odor violation was received. Plant officials have 15 days to explain the smells.
