August 27, 2012 |

In Brazil, Cargill said it will open a new $64.5M biodiesel plant in Mato Grosso do Sul state this month, the company’s VP for corporate affairs in Brazil, Valeria Militelli, told Reuters.  The project was originally announced for Tres Lagoas in 2010, where the company already has a soybean crushing unit. Green electricity, sourced from renewable energy, is supplying power for the project.

The plant with a projected annual capacity of 200,000 tonnes, was originally slated to cost $76.2 million. Brazil implemented a B5 diesel mandate in 2010.
