Seneca BioEnergy open house on Friday

Seneca BioEnergy has gone from blueprints to construction to production and we plan to celebrate this accomplishment with a special event at our green energy complex at the former Seneca Army Depot. We would like you to join us at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, at our complex, Seneca AgBio Green Energy Park, 6238 State Route 96, Building 357, Romulus, NY 14541. Watch our production work and learn about plans for our future growth. With the 2011 wine grape harvest under way, Seneca BioEnergy has started processing grape waste pomace from numerous local wineries, separating grape seeds that ultimately will be pressed to yield Finger Lakes Grape Seed Oil. Our product is the first local grape seed oil, a healthy, extra virgin oil with lots of nutrients. We plan the start of our biodiesel production in the coming months. We will be joined by local and regional guests, including New York State Sen. Michael Nozzolio, state Assemblyman Brian Kolb and representatives from the office of U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the Empire State Development Corporation, the Seneca County IDA and others. Please plan to join us for this proud occasion, which is open to the public. RSVP please.
