Since 2006 Whole Energy has been exploring the potential pathways for upgrading and using glycerin in various commercial applications. In 2010 Whole Energy applied for State Funding which was awarded by the end of that year. Due to unforeseen circumstances this project had to be revised by placing Whole Energy as the lead applicant. The revised project plan and facility plan were put in place this fall. Whole Energy intends to complete construction and commissioning of this glycerin plant by the end of 2012.
