WILMINGTON -- North Carolina is making headway toward more biofuel production.
A spokesperson for Kreido Biofuels says there is no date yet for the groundbreaking for the new facility. But they say they are now in the permitting process and are moving forward quickly.
Port of Wilmington Communication Manager Susan Clizbe said, "The North Carolina State Ports Authority Board of Directors has approved an option with Kreido Biofuels on a piece of property on the Port of Wilmington where they plan to build a plant to produce biodiesel."
A spokesperson for Cape Fear Biodiesel, a local co-op, worries that such a large production facility would concentrate on global distribution. The group is concerned the plant will not provide enough product for local consumers who want biodiesel.
