What does a forester in Oregon have in common with aircraft mechanic students in Turkey?
Red Rock Biofuels LLC is in the process of planning a commercial-scale biorefinery in Lakeview, Oregon and plans to commence construction June 2016. The plant will have a production capacity of 15 million gallons per year. This renewable biofuels facility will sustainably source available forest feedstocks, helping to thin the forest to decrease fuel for forest wildfires. The plant will create around 100 local jobs in total in the plant and in the field.
LCRI and Lake County are working hard to make this project come to fruition. FedEx, one of the companies that will purchase the biofuel published an article discussing this groundbreaking project.
