Colorado’s latest biodiesel production facility is open for business.
Rocky Mountain Biodiesel, Colorado’s only licensed advanced biofuel producer, has opened its Parker, Colorado biodiesel plant. This company press release says for $20 a year, Rocky Mountain Biodiesel club memberships allow customers to buy B99.9 biodiesel for $2.30 per gallon, as well as supplying the green fuel to regional fuel distributors:
“Biodiesel isn’t a pipe dream in Colorado anymore. Rocky Mountain Biodiesel is meeting the demand for quality biofuels with our ASTM specification fuel,” said Randall Lichner, Rocky Mountain Biodiesel Chief Operations Officer. “We already help fuel distributors meet their customer demand and help our club members reduce pollution from diesel emissions.”
“We selected the Denver market for our biofuel facility because we knew that there were no other plants operating in the state, and that any plans by competition would take months or years to get off the ground due to instability in the financial markets,” said Lichner. “It’s really a win-win situation. As the only producer in Colorado, we can dominate the market for locally-produced advanced biofuel, priced competitively with petroleum diesel and consumers in the region can save money and reduce pollution at the same time.”
The Rocky Mountain Biodiesel plant makes biodiesel from waste vegetable oil.
