model in the coming months. STOCKXPERT
National Wind Solutions, Inc. (NWND) said it has received a proposal to expand the capacity of its biodiesel plant in Texas to over 18 million gallons per year. The expansion project is estimated to cost approximately US $800,000.
Under the proposal, the plant would be converted to a continuous flow processing technology that uses less energy than batch processing. The new technology platform will not use that much water, making it more environmentally friendly than the older technologies.

Based in Houston, Texas, NWND is a leading developer of wind resources and has branched to other clean energy technologies through its Zero Emissions Energy subsidiary.
In August, the company acquired a fully operational biodiesel plant in Atascosa County, Texas for $3 million.
