I recently had the opportunity to spend a day in and around Dove Creek, Colorado covering a story on alternative fuel production. San Juan BioEnergy is setting up to produce sunflower oil along with bio diesel from their site in Dove Creek. The company has begun to create a partnership with local farmers to produce the crops needed for production, sunflowers being the mainstay. The company’s general manager, Jeff Berman, has high hopes for the economic impact of San Juan BioEnergy within the community.
