Lake Erie Biofuels buys Alabama biodiesel refinery

ERIE, Pa. — A Pennsylvania biodiesel producer is expanding into Alabama.

The Erie Times-News reports Lake Erie Biofuels LLC has bought the former Veros Energy biodiesel refinery in Moundsville, Alabama.

Lake Erie Biofuels does business as HERO BX and will operate the plant under the name HERO BX Alabama LLC.

The Moundville plant has 17 employees who will be retained after the purchase. The Erie company will hire 10 to 12 more workers as they bring the refinery back online early next year.

Lake Erie Biofuels bought the refiners so it can serve new markets that it can’t reach from its northwestern Pennsylvania base of operations.
