SequentialbSeQuential Pacific Biodiesel is adding more Seattle, Washington locations to its customer base. This story from Pacific Business News says the joint venture between Oregon’s SeQuential Biofuels and Maui-based Pacific Biodiesel is adding the Woodland Park Zoo and Husky Stadium as providers of used cooking oil for the biodiesel producer.

The longest-running commercial biodiesel producer in the Pacific Northwest, the Portland, Ore.-based company said that both facilities join a growing list of Seattle area businesses recycling cooking oil.

In 2012, SeQuential Pacific recycled enough oil from Washington businesses to offset more than 10 million pounds of carbon.

“We’ve worked hard to build a network of partners throughout the Pacific Northwest that truly value our planet,” SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel General Manager Tyson Keever said in a statement. “Our growing customer base in Washington demonstrates the environmental commitment businesses across the state of Washington continue to exemplify of meaningful and economically responsible environmental stewardship.”

Earlier this year, SeQuential produced its 20 millionth gallon of the fuel and struck a deal with the University of Oregon to recycle the athletic department’s cooking oil into biodiesel.
