    Upgrading of an idled biodiesel plant.

    Green Energy Biofuel (GEB) has invested US$4.3 million in various upgrades to a previously idle 40 million gallons per year biodiesel plant located at 2110 Main Street in Warrenville, Aiken County, SC.

    After reworking the former Green Valley Biofuel plant, which has been renamed GEB3, on 5th October 2018, GEB reported that it has produced the first batch of processed grease out of the new plant, which will be fully online and open for business in December 2018.

    The 36,000 square foot plant is equipped with two 200-horsepower boilers rated at 6.5 million BTUs each. One is natural gas, while the other is biodiesel-powered.

    When GEB purchased the plant, it was equipped with three 20,000 gallon biodiesel reactors. GEB has added five centrifuges to the process and has two massive distillation towers that will allow it to increase production when the price of biodiesel rises. According to the company, with the extensive process redesign, it is able to process its own feedstock in-house.

    The facility will be able to process 180,000 gallons a day of food and waste cooking and other oils/fats, totalling over 60 million gallons annually. The new plant will run three shifts, 24 hours a day.

    GEB3 is the company’s third plant. GEB, formerly known as Midlands Biofuels, also has a 300,000 gallon biodiesel production facility in Winnsboro, SC, and another plant in Knoxville, TN.
