The powers that be want to know if an ethanol plant will smell so they are taking a field trip to the midwest to find out.  The plants are nowhere near the size that will be built in Chesapeake but hopefully the officials will find some answers.  Stay tuned.

This is a great community.  I sold all of the homes several years ago as I was the site agent.  Because the homes were built with all vinyl they stand the test of time.  The community loods as good today as it did when it was finished.  Some credit can go to the association manager who oversees the landscaping and watering.  Yes!! watering.  The community waters the front and rear yard.  Hows that for relaxing.  I64 and Greenbrier Mall are only minutes away but for that upscale shopping bug, McArthur Mall is just over the bridge.

A 17 acre site next to the Greenbrier Mall will be turned into 280 upscale apartments, a high end hotel and 100,000 of retail space.  The Streets of Greenbrier group said the complex will be similiar to Town Center in Virginia Beach.  This will make for  the second high end hotel in Chesapeake.

The other day I talked about Chesapeake becoming the home of the largest biodiesel plant in the country. Well now its official because a California company, SE-Energy Technology, has chosen Chesapeake due to its proximity to naval installations as the U.S. Navy is striving to make biodiesel 20% of its diesel fuel consumption. Biodiesel is clean-burning and is produced from renewable, domestic resources. How cool is that. This plant should come on by December and will employ some 40 people. The site is on 30 acres and will have storage for 42 million gallons.

A biodiesel refenery in Chesapeake could soon be a reality. The plant would be called the Virginia Point Biodesel complex and would feature twin domes some 47 outdoor tanks near South Norfolk in Chesapeake. It would almost directly across from a proposed ethanol plant. This biodiesel plant according to its California based developers could be the largest in the world. Ever hear of jatropha? Well its a tropical plant and could supply over 320 million gallons a year of the clean-burning fuel. Where will this plant come from? How about Africa, India and the South Pacific. As part of the development plans in Chesapeake, jatropha would be grown in Mexico, too. This is a real technical marvel and several technoligies would have to be merged to make it work. Can it work? According to Clifford...
