For biodiesel producers that need to operate when margins are profitable, FCStone Merchant Services provides working capital financing for biodiesel plants through our feedstock financing program. In this program, FCStone Merchant Services originates feedstock and sells to the biodiesel plant on a credit basis. FCStone Merchant Services works with the plant to find the best off-take partners to market their biodiesel. This is a better alternative for a biodiesel plant than a traditional tolling arrangement. FCStone Merchant Services can also offer margin and crush management for these plants if they are not already customers with the assistance of our experts in the FCStone Renewable Fuels Group.
