Flambeau River Biofuels to build green diesel plant in Park Falls

Flambeau River Biofuels LLC, Park Falls, has drafted a letter of intent to engineer, procure and construct the largest second generation green diesel plant in the U.S. at an existing pulp and paper mill in Park Falls, a press release from the company said.

The $250 million project, funded in part with a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, is expected to be fully operational by 2013.

Flambeau selected the team of AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, and Miron Construction Co. Inc., a Neenah-based construction firm, as its contractor.

The plant will use patented process technology from ThermoChem Recovery International to convert 1,000 dry tons per day of woody biomass from bark, sawdust, wood, and forest residue into green electrical power, steam and heat to the adjacent Flambeau River Papers’ operation, and green diesel fuel and wax to the domestic market, the release said.
