Rural Development State Director Moul tours northeast Nebraska biodiesel plant


USDA Rural Development's Nebraska State Director Maxine Moul toured the Northeast Nebraska Biodiesel plant in Scribner recently. The soybean processing plant includes a crush facility, oil refinery and biodiesel production operation that carries a 5 million gallon biodiesel nameplate capacity.

"As the newly appointed State Director I find it fascinating to visit and to become acquainted with the projects that Rural Development has been involved with," said Moul. "The Northeast Nebraska Biodiesel plant is a great example of how local and federal levels can work together to assist businesses with their needs."

Local investors, board of directors, lender, grant writers and economic development expertise were teamed with USDA Rural Development assistance. Rural Development has provided Northeast Nebraska Biodiesel LLC with a 9006 Renewable Energy Grant for equipment and a Value Added Producer Grant used for working capital. Washington County Bank of Blair provided the business with a loan for working capital that USDA Rural Development backed with a guarantee.

Moul was nominated for the state director position by U.S. Senator Ben Nelson and appointed by President Barack Obama on June 29, 2009. Moul was Nelson's Lt. Governor from 1990 to 1993 when she left to become Director of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development until 1999. In 1995, she helped form the Partnership for Rural Nebraska and served on its Governance Board, representing the State of Nebraska. She served as President and CEO of the Nebraska Community Foundation, formed in 1993. She was elected President Emeritus and retired from the Foundation in January 2006.

USDA Rural Development administered nearly $195 million in grants, loans and loan guarantees in Nebraska last fiscal year for housing, business and community development, telecommunications, value-added activities and electricity. Since 2000, over $1 billion has been invested in Nebraska through Rural Development programs.
