Platinum Crush, a new first-in-class soybean crushing facility being built in Alta, Iowa, will propel value-added agriculture forward in the communities of Northwest Iowa while building on its strong agricultural heritage. When operational in Spring 2024, Platinum Crush will help meet the expanding global demand for protein and oils in the feed, food, and fuel markets, including animal nutrition, human nutrition, and renewable fuels. Crushing 110,000 bushels daily, we are building a team of 55 to 65 colleagues offering high-quality career opportunities to extract all the value possible from locally-grown soybeans. With strong logistics, best-in-class efficiencies, and proximity to some of the largest feed mills in Iowa, we’re helping position Buena Vista County and surrounding areas into the center of the global food and fuel supply chain.

Soybean Bids/Offers

Platinum Crush is developing a $350 million dollar soybean crushing business that when operational in Spring 2024 will crush 38.5 million bushels of soybeans annually (110,000 bushels per day) producing 847,000 tons of soybean meal per year (2,420 tons per day), 450 million pounds of crude soybean oil per year (615 tons per day), and 77,000 tons of pelleted soybean hulls per year (220 tons per day). The soybean meal and soy hulls (which contain highly digestible fiber) will be used in animal nutrition while the soybean oil can be used for a variety of applications, including the human nutrition and the rapidly expanding, renewable diesel bioenergy segment.
