Blue Marble buys site for commercial biorefinery

Specialty biochemical manufacturer Blue Marble Biomaterials (BMB) announced yesterday that it has completed the purchase of former GTC Oats Inc. facility in Missoula, Montana, which was previously a wet extraction processing plant for food ingredients manufacture.

The site includes 3.81 acres of land, a 19,000 square foot building complex, and parking stalls for over 100 employees. BMB said the site will become the company's first large commercial biorefinery. The building will be retrofitted with systems that will allow for greater energy efficiency and enable the site to be a showcase for the company's "zero waste" focus", according to Colby Underwood, co-CEO and chief business officer for BMB.
