Frankfort, Ky. (May 11, 2005) – The Kentucky Office of Energy Policy and the University of Kentucky will sponsor a tour of the Griffin Industries Biodiesel Plant in Butler, Ky., on Thursday, May 12.

Participants will get a firsthand look at the biodiesel production process and factors involved in establishing and operating biodiesel production facilities. Speakers and panelists will discuss the benefits of biodiesel, the impact of current energy policy on development of a biodiesel market and ideas to encourage development of biodiesel plants.

The Griffin Industries Biodiesel Plant is one of the most advanced biodiesel production facilities in the world. The facility is located in Butler, in Pendleton County. It produces Griffin Industries’ own Bio G-3000 ™ premium biodiesel fuel. Griffin Industries supplies Bio G-3000 to the motor fuel industry, regulated motor vehicle fleets and other diesel fuel/middle distillate market segments.

This tour is in support of the goals outlined in Governor Ernie Fletcher’s Comprehensive Energy Strategy. The strategy urges the creation of policies that promote the production, consumption and availability of biodiesel in Kentucky.
