Garnett Ethanol Plant Expansion into Renewable Diesel Production is Expected to Mean 12 to 15 New Jobs in 2015

GARNETT — An expansion into renewable diesel production is expected to mean 12 to 15 new jobs in 2015 at East Kansas Agri-Energy LLC’s Garnett ethanol plant, the company’s top executive said this week.

The company recently announced its plans to integrate renewable diesel production into its product mix by building a new facility capable of generating 3 million gallons of the hydrocarbon fuel per year, with the ability to double that capacity in the future.

Construction is expected to begin in the next eight to 12 weeks and should take about 12 to 14 months to complete, Jeff Oestmann, East Kansas Agri-Energy’s president and chief executive officer, said.
