CountryMark Invests Nearly $500,000 in Soybean Based Biodiesel

July 15, 2017 |

In Indiana, agricultural, farmer-owned cooperative, CountryMark invested nearly half a million dollars for its new biodiesel rack injection system. CEO Charlie Smith said the new system benefits consumers because of the more efficient and better biodiesel blend, and benefits soy farmers in their co-op because of increased demand of the soybean oil used for their biodiesel.

CEO Charlie Smith told Hoosier Ag Today, “In Mount Vernon we continue to have a splash vending operation. This sequential blending is quicker, reduces costs, and gives a superior blending effectiveness for the high quality biodiesel that we add to our existing diesel fuel. So, this is really about next generation technology of getting the proper mixing between the biofuel, which is a soybean byproduct, and the diesel fuel itself.”
