Biodiesel Production Facility in Ellensburg Receives Air Permit
By MAI HOANG
"An Ellensburg startup company has received a state permit it needs to proceed with plans for a commercial biodiesel production.
Now armed with an air quality permit, Central Washington Biodiesel has begun construction of a production facility at the Ellensburg Business Development Authority's business incubator.
The permit, granted last week, is required because the facility would release emissions of methanol, an air pollutant deemed toxic by the state, said Lynnette Haller, an air quality engineer for the Department of Ecology. "
