Kansas company to build biogas plant in Missouri

SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas company that converts agricultural manure into energy and fertilizer will build its next biogas production plant in west-central Missouri’s Pettis County.

BioStar Systems, of Leawood, Kansas, operates fuel production centers around the U.S. Company officials and the Missouri Department of Economic Development announced Wednesday in Sedalia that BioStar plans to spend $60 million on the Pettis County plant.

About two dozen jobs are expected to be created. The plant will partner with a local poultry farm, Rose Acres, to produce a new regional source for renewable energy.

BioStar could receive nearly $1.5 million in state incentives if it meets criteria for job creation and investment.
