The new Sapp Bros. biodiesel blending facility will hold its grand opening in Columbus on May 24.
The new blending facility is located five miles from the Columbus NuStar terminal. Fuel suppliers can load diesel on their transport at the terminal, then load biodiesel at the Sapp Bros. terminal to the desired blend level. Fuel suppliers will have 24/7 access and loading upon approval. The biodiesel will be sourced from soybeans and BQ-9000 certified plants, assuring high-quality biodiesel.
Biodiesel is the only advanced biofuel that is commercially available and lowers greenhouse gases by more than 50 percent compared to petroleum.
Sapp Bros. opened a biodiesel blending terminal in August 2017 in Norfolk and will open another in Geneva this June. Funded by the Nebraska Soybean Board and with consulting services provided by MEG Corp Fuel Consulting, all of the blending facilities are within a five-mile radius of the diesel terminal.
The biodiesel blending facility grand opening in Columbus will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 307 13th St.
