The Davison County Planning Commission gave its stamp of approval on the $500 million soybean and sunflower crush plant for Mitchell, South Dakota. On Tuesday, the final project application will be considered by the Board of Adjustment. South Dakota Soybean Processors CEO Tom Kersting says the new plant will be located three miles south of town. SDSP has two other soy crush facilities in the state, The new crush facility in Mitchell would be similar to Volga, “It will have more rail capacity and the ability to process 100,000 bushels per day compared to 85,000 bushels per day at Volga. It will have a more extensive refinery, too.” If the project stays on schedule, Kersting says the new soy crush facility should be completed by in 2025. Photo credit: South Dakota Soybean Processors
