The Warden Project—Opportunity for the region and investors
Pacific Coast Canola delivers an exciting economic development opportunity to Eastern Washington with the construction of a state-of-the-art "canola seed to canola oil" facility in Warden, Washington. PCC has chosen its technology partners and contractors with exacting standards for safety, quality of workmanship, and purity of the end product.
Designed by the world's leader in canola processing technology, PCC's Warden plant is designed to produce over 300,000,000 pounds of canola oil each year. That oil will be food grade quality but also available for renewable fuel production.
Construction started on July 14, 2011. The Warden plant is designed to crush over 350,000 metric tonnes of canola seed annually.
- Protein-rich canola meal: A preferred feed for dairy cattle, PCC's meal is expected to supply the dairy market in the Pacific Northwest, California and the Pacific Rim.
Opportunities for the region:
- Dozens of additional, permanent local jobs
- Hundreds of millions of dollars of opportunity for Pacific Northwest farmers to provide canola seed to PCC
