EcoComplex Biodiesel Facility

EcoComplexProgram Staff: Jeremy Ferrell, Jeff Ramsdell

Appalachian State University with partner Catawba County operates a modular biodiesel research and testing facility located at the NC EcoComplex, an eco-industrial park centered on the Blackburn landfill in Newton, NC.  The goal of the EcoComplex is to facilitate synergistic public and private partnerships that minimize waste and optimize the recovery and utilization of energy and materials.  The goal of the EcoComplex Biodiesel Facility is to serve NC and regional biodiesel producers and encourage the development of integrated and distributed biorefineries through research, educational, and outreach activities.
