ADM To Build Canola Biodiesel Plant In Canada


reuters / U.S.-based agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland Co. said Nov. 14 that it would build a 265-millionlitre biodiesel plant in Lloydminster, Alta.

The plant would crush canola, Canada s second- biggest crop after spring wheat, and boost ADM s North American biodiesel production capacity by 50 per cent.

ADM said it would start building the facility in spring 2012 for completion in the fourth quarter of 2013, next to ADM s canola-crushing facility in the western province.

Since July 1, 2011, all diesel fuel and heating oil sold in Canada must contain at least two per cent biodiesel, under a mandate from the Canadian government.
