  • (1888PressRelease) December 27, 2010 - Biodiesel consulting group, Lee Enterprises of Little Rock, Ark., is pleased to announce the addition of Thomas Anhorn to its team of consultants. Anhorn received his B.S. in Building Construction Management from the University of Miami in 1974. He has over thirty years' experience, with over two decades of ownership of a filtration manufacturing company. Firm owner, Wayne Lee, says that Anhorn has vast hands on experience in both "cold soak and filtration issues and will fill a much-needed specific expertise related to those matters. Lee notes that these issues are often "a major factor in a plant's operations and cost to produce the end product" and that having an expert in this area seemed to be a natural fit for Lee Enterprises.

    Anhorn notes that "the proper implementation and positioning of filtration systems in biodiesel processes almost always correlates to savings on the plant floor and the company's bottom line". And, both Lee and Anhorn agree that as more biodiesel plants are built, especially in colder climates, and higher blends of biodiesel are used, cold soak issues will continue to be at the forefront of consideration for plant owners.

    Earlier this month, Lee Enterprises announced the addition of John Hardy as corporate counsel in its Little Rock headquarters and has plans to add at least one additional consultant in the near term. "We look forward to assisting biodiesel plant owners, purchasers, and others in the industry, and trust that we have formed a team which is 'second to none' in the industry" says Lee. He also noted that his group's geographic balance and fluency in multiple languages is of vital importance in dealing with customers both in the U.S. and abroad.

    Last year, Lee Enterprises was selected by Agri Process Innovations to market their line of biodiesel products and services. Agri Process Innovations of Stuttgart, Arkansas, is a nationally recognized biodiesel design and engineering company. "With clients on six continents, Agri Process Innovations really expands our industry sphere", said Lee. "The list of services we can provide is really quite extensive, and between our group and our strategic relationships, there really is not much in the biodiesel industry that we cannot do. The addition of in house corporate counsel is the "icing on the cake" for us" said Lee
