Biodiesel fuel is already distributed here in mid-Michigan and it's certainly being used. But by this time next year, usage will increase per the EPA's new regulations. It will be easier to purchase as well.
Two biodiesel plants are being built. One will be built in West Michigan's Bangor. Mid-Michigan farmers along with other investors have put up the funds to get the plant going.
The $7.5 million Bangor biodiesel plant will produce 10 million gallons of alternative fuel per year. Ground breaking for the building will be next week and production could begin as early as July.
Michigan's other biodiesel plant, currently under construction is in the Upper Peninsula near Gladstone.
