AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dynamic Fuels, a 50/50 venture of Tyson Foods, Inc., and Syntroleum Corporation, has awarded Emerson Process Management the contract to digitally automate North America’s first commercial-scale renewable diesel plant. With Emerson’s PlantWeb® digital architecture, Dynamic Fuels will gain optimum control through the networking of thousands of Emerson smart devices, systems, and predictive maintenance software.

The $138 million facility in Geismar, La, which is scheduled to begin operations in early 2010, will use Syntroleum’s revolutionary biofuels manufacturing process – Bio-Synfining™ – with plans to convert animal fats and greases into 75 million gallons/year of ultra-clean, renewable diesel fuel. With some plant modifications, the Geismar facility can also produce renewable jet fuel.
