Based in Spiritwood, ND, the approximately $350 million crush and refining complex will feature automation technology and have the capacity to process 150,000 bushels of soybeans per day. The creation is to meet demand from food, feed, industrial and biofuel customers, including producers of renewable diesel.

The facility is expected to be complete prior to the 2023 harvest.

ADM also plans to invest approximately $25 million to expand refining and storage capacity at its crush and refining facility in Quincy, Illinois.

This project will fully align the location’s refining capabilities with its crush capacity and allow for greater flexibility in meeting the needs of ADM’s food, biofuel and industrial customers.

The expanded capacity is expected to be online by Q1 2022.

Greg Morris, president of ADM’s Ag Services and Oilseeds business, said, "ADM’s commitment to preserving and protecting our planet’s resources stretches from the farm gate to the food on our tables and the renewable fuel we put in our vehicles. This exciting new project allows us to partner with North Dakota farmers to further advance the role of agriculture in addressing climate change through the production of low carbon feedstocks for products such as renewable diesel.”

Senator John Hoeven said, "We’ve been working to bring this new soybean crushing facility to North Dakota and met with key leaders from ADM over two years ago to develop this plan. We’re pleased that this new plant will be open in 2023, as it will provide a significant new market for North Dakota soybean growers, while creating good jobs and economic growth. We appreciate the work of ADM, as well as the governor, the other members of the delegation and the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corporation for their efforts on this exciting new opportunity.”
