Biodiesel Industries built the nation’s first fully renewable biodiesel manufacturing plant as a landfill in Denton, Texas. Cannon was part of the team providing structural and mechanical engineering support.  In addition, Biodiesel Industries wished to develop a design for their proprietary process such that all components associated with their biodiesel plants could fit into Sea-Train type cargo containers for shipment around the world. Cannon performed seismic analyses and designed rectangular tanks, supporting structures for equipment and piping, and anchorage for all components. Containment foundations were designed for individual installation locations to comply with local seismic zones and building code requirements.
