Facts & Figures Bioenergy
High Plains Bioenergy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Seaboard Foods, supports the use of sustainable energy from and for the Seaboard Foods’ system.
High Plains Bioenergy produces biodiesel by using pork fat from the Guymon processing facility.
HPB-St. Joe Biodiesel, located in St. Joseph, Mo., produces biodiesel using regional vegetable oils.
It is the only biodiesel plant in the United States using predominately pork fat to create biodiesel at a large scale.
Nearly 100 employees convert animal fat or vegetable oils to biodiesel in the plants, which run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
High Plains Bioenergy makes more than 55 million gallons of biodiesel annually.
The Guymon plant is BQ-9000 certified through the National Biodiesel Board.
HPB CNG, a division of High Plains Bioenergy, supports the energy needs of Seaboard Foods’ compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vehicles.
HPB CNG owns a public filling station, located across the road from the Guymon pork processing facility.
This ensures the availability of CNG fuel to Seaboard Foods’ truck fleet and others in the Oklahoma panhandle.
Seaboard Foods has more than 200 vehicles that run on CNG and two additional private filling stations.
CNG emits far less pollutants than diesel, including 25% less greenhouse gasses, 88% less NOx and 22% less particulate matter.
