Local Impact/Community

We believe in supporting American farmers and rural communities.

We are a driving force for economic prosperity in the region and adding value that can benefit local communities.

Rooted in America’s Heartland

Our existing facility in Phillipsburg has been producing biofuel since 2006 and continues to do so today. Our additional investment in the wheat facility is another sign of our commitment to adding value for American farmers and rural communities. Located in the heart of the continent, our direct rail and truck access allows Amber Wave to serve as a reliable domestic partner from coast-to-coast for companies producing basic consumer products from food to fuel.
