SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. - Nature's BioReserves is expected to begin building a new, 60-million-gallon-per-year biodiesel fuel plant this spring in South Sioux City, according to the JournalStar.com. The fuel will be made from the tallow byproduct produced by the neighboring Beef Products Inc. plant in the city's Roth Industrial Park. The plant may create up to 40 jobs.
More than one year ago, a similar project estimated to cost $117 million was planned for the industrial park, but under a different name. BPI and its owner, Eldon Roth, were among investors in the initial project.
