BioStar Systems Plans $60 Million Biogas Production Facility In Pettis County, Missouri

BioStar Systems has selected Pettis County, Missouri, as the location of its new $60 million biogas production facility.

BioStar Systems is a waste-to-energy company focused on agricultural manure. The company utilizes anaerobic digestion to convert manure into biogas and organic fertilizers. The company is headquartered in Leawood, Kansas, and operates several fuel production centers across the U.S. The Pettis County facility will partner with local poultry farm, Rose Acres, to produce a new regional source for renewable energy.

"BioStar is excited to open our new company in Pettis County," said Bill Love, Co-owner/CEO of BioStar Systems. "We found Missouri's business-friendly environment and the cooperation of local and state partners to be second to none. With our raw material source nearby at Rose Acres, we will enjoy a great atmosphere for our company."

"We are elated to have this announcement of a new company decide on Pettis County," said Economic Development Board President Rusty Kahrs. "We have been working with BioStar for many years. Our enhanced enterprise zone and the state's incentive program were some of the key decision makers for this company to be able to bring this to fruition."

"BioStar's decision to invest in Pettis County exemplifies Missouri's unique strengths in both the manufacturing and energy solutions industries," said Mike Downing, Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. "I'm proud that the state's superior workforce and business-friendly environment continues to create opportunities for forward-thinking companies like BioStar to grow and succeed in the Show-Me State."

"BioStar is a tremendous addition to the community of Pettis County," said Presiding Commissioner John Meehan. "Our manufacturing family is now joined by another great company that adds to our diversification as a county."

As an incentive, to assist BioStar Systems with its expansion in Pettis County, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria. Economic Development Sedalia – Pettis County also partnered with BioStar Systems to help make its expansion possible.
