Proposed Minnesota Biodiesel Plant Would Create Soybean Demand

Proposed Crookston facility might mean 100 jobs, create local demand in an 11-county area

Soybeans 161205

A soybean-crushing facility slated for construction in 2021 near Crookston, MN, will help farmers in northern Minnesota who are now being paid less for soybeans because of their distance from customers reports the Star-Tribune.

Soybeans will be crushed into biodiesel fuel at the $150 million plant, creating local demand for soybeans in an 11-county area around Crookston.

The plant will also create 100 jobs, and part of the project is a smaller specialty soybean-crushing facility that would be used to process non-GMO or organic soybeans.
