Raptor Fabrication and Equipment, Inc. has started up its newest biodiesel plant for its customer, Greenwave Biodiesel of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The facility successfully produced its first batch of ASTM certified biodiesel and will now begin its commercial production of biodiesel fuel.
The Greenwave facility utilizes Raptor's flagship mid-sized, multi-feedstock production system and is capable of producing 3.6 million gallons of biodiesel per year. System production can be remotely monitored by Raptor to insure maximum efficiency and up-time.
"The Greenwave plant is our first launch of the new year and we have introduced exciting new remote monitoring technology in the plant giving us the ability to monitor production and diagnose any problems increasing overall production and customer satisfaction," said Tom Gleason, President and CEO of Raptor Fabrication and Equipment. "With the reinstatement of the federal biodiesel tax-credit and facilities we currently have in production for customers, 2011 is expected to be a strong year for Raptor," added Gleason.
