Consolidated Biofuels Inc. of Chicago said Wednesday that it wants to build a combination biodiesel production and soybean oil crush facility at the Port of Yellow Bend on the Mississippi River, just east of McGehee in Chicot County.
The company said the facility, which it wants to be fully operational in 2008, would have a designed capacity of 150 million gallons of biodiesel and 70 million bushels of soybean oil crush annually.
The facility would be located on 65 acres of optioned acreage in the Port of Yellow Bend’s facilities, the company said.
County Judge Fred Zieman said he had been told that initial employment would be about 40 workers and it could reach 200 workers at full capacity.
