NextDiesel Grand Opening
A trio of business investors decided to enter the alternative energy field. After a couple of years of research, they created Biofuel Industries Group with the goal of becoming a leading provider of alternative energy solutions in the Midwest.
This West Bloomfield-based company came to Marx Layne weeks before breaking ground on a biodiesel manufacturing facility in Adrian, seeking assistance in developing awareness of its high-quality, trademarked biodiesel product to current and potential investors, customers and clients.
In addition to creating jobs, the NextDieselTM Biodiesel Facility was the FIRST in Michigan to be built in a designated Renewable Energy Renaissance Zone and, upon completion, became the state’s LARGEST biodiesel manufacturing facility, initially producing 20 million gallons per year with the capacity to manufacture as much as 100 million gallons annually. The plant also includes state-of-the-art technology, which would allow it to produce biofuel using a variety of feedstocks.
