Gen-X Energies Opens Doors to Lawmakers

Posted: Updated:

BURBANK, Wash.- The Tri-Cities first bio-diesel plant opens their doors for the first time.

Gen-X Energies is still about a week away from pumping the first few gallons of fuel, but they opened the doors to local leaders Friday.

The facility can produce 40 million gallons of biodiesel each year, but their permit right now only calls for 5 million gallons. 

Founders say it's two years of sweat and blood finally paying off.
