Big Island Carbon LLC Files For Chapter 7

On November 5, the Hawaii-based company, Big Island Carbon LLC, filed the necessary paperwork in order to seek Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. The company, which manufactures carbon from macadamia nut shells grown in Hawaii, has already laid off several employees, including the CEO of the company.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court documents show that the COO and the Controller of Big Island Carbon LLC were also let go amidst the bankruptcy filing. The papers indicate that the Big Island Carbon project grew to be too expensive, and the funds and grants that were coming in were not enough to fuel the plant’s production. The plant is near completion, and needs approximately $5 million more to be considered finished.

A bankruptcy trustee that will be assigned to the Chapter 7 bankruptcy case of Big Island Carbon LLC will more than likely search for a buyer that is interested in the assets of the biomass plant. The buyer may also choose to finish the production of the plant in order to begin operations.

If you are considering filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy for your small business, please contact the Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers of Hong Law, PLC by calling 319-632-1400 today.
