Hero biodiesel plans expansion

Biofuel producer Hero BX recently received a $1.6 million (€1.1 million) grant to expand production by 10 million gallons per year.

The Pennsylvania, US based company expects to expand its use of farm-raised feedstocks, which would benefit farmers in New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

CEO Leonard Kosar said: ‘Unlike many other companies that are simply developing technologies to use second and third generation feedstocks to produce biofuels someday, we're profitably producing biofuels today.’

Hero BX expects to boost its output by 25% from 45 million gallons to 55 million gallons per year.

Kosar said: ‘[America] won't be able to produce the next generation of biodiesel and ethanol if we abandon first-generation biofuels producers.’
