Shuttered Florida biodiesel facility leaking glycerin from old storage tank

December 12, 2018 |

In Florida, local news reports that a mothballed biodiesel facility in North Fort Meyers owned by Green Gallon Solutions has begun to leak glycerin-like products that are treated as hazardous materials. The state’s department of environmental protection has called for immediate cleanup of the leaking 10,000-gallon tank that had glycerin oozing from it when inspectors were on site for an annual inspection of the septic tank. So far none has contaminated the soil nor a nearby pond. There are questions regarding the site as one of the former operating officer of the company that shut down in 2017 is seeking funds to restart it as a different company.
