Metro Denver Opens First Retail Biodiesel Fueling Station

November 24, 2003

Providing trucking fleets, school districts and diesel vehicle owners in the metro Denver area with a local source of biodiesel, a renewable vegetable oil-based fuel that could produce significant new revenues for regional farmers, Blue Sun Biodiesel and Shoco Oil, Inc., announce the opening of Denver’s first retail biodiesel fueling station on November 14th in Commerce City. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made from vegetable oil, and offers significant health and environmental advantages over petroleum diesel, reducing particulate emissions, greenhouse gases, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. Producing biodiesel uses one unit of fossil energy and yields 3.2 units, giving it a higher energy balance than petroleum fuels or ethanol. Biodiesel can be used in existing diesel engines without modification.
