Tri-State Biodiesel project in Connecticut breaks ground

October 27, 2014 |

In Connecticut, Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch hosted a groundbreaking celebration on Friday to mark the construction of a new manufacturing and distribution facility for Tri-State Biodiesel in the city. The Tri-State Biodiesel project is part of a significant green investment into the Bridgeport Eco-Industrial Park that supports the creation of new “green collar” jobs. Tri-State Biodiesel expects to create an additional 25 jobs, targeted to residents of the low-income community, within the first two years of operation.

Capital provided by NDC’s Grow America Fund will support the construction of a new state-of-the-art bio refinery, where Tri-State Biodiesel will manufacture and distribute biodiesel fuel. NDC’s Grow America Fund also partnered with the The JPMorgan Chase Foundation’s Collaboratives Program, which is designed to help small business lenders build capacity and to jumpstart job creation in low- and moderate-income communities.
