First Biodiesel Plant Proposed for Schuylkill, Pennsylvania

NAGSCO Corp., which is working with Liberty Oil, intends to construct its first biodiesel plant in Schuylkill County, to convert food waste oil into biodiesel fuel.

The proposed facility is under scrutiny from Schuylkill County Council members and the Schuylkill County Municipal Authority concerned about the potential local impact, especially because the proposed facility will be close to two community playgrounds.

Schuylkill County Council member Councilman Andy Palokas said, "The borough is doing some research to see what laws apply. We want to make sure we know our rights and we want to make sure we do what's best for our residents," The Republican Herald newspaper reported.

Schuylkill County Council member Warren Thomas added, “There's going to be quite a bit of stuff that goes through there. They're looking to do two million gallons a year. And it's made from used oil from places that make French fries and stuff like that.”
NAGSCO Corp. partner Al Domizio countered, "It's a smaller-scale operation than one might imagine. And the plant will be contained inside that building. It's green energy and a good project, which promotes renewable, cleaner energy and it will create jobs."
