Presque Isle firm employed to work on $100M biofuel venture

A Presque Isle agency will design and lead building on a Louisiana firm’s $100 million renewable gasoline plant.

Delta Biofuel of Jeanerette, Louisiana, has chosen Participant Design Inc. to assist engineer and provide a facility that can flip sugarcane residue — referred to as bagasse — into gasoline pellets that might be used to provide electrical energy.

The Louisiana plant is anticipated to be the primary in North America to make use of bagasse to create such a gasoline for business, in response to Participant Design.
