We kicked off the one-year anniversary of the opening of our retail biodiesel station by hosting Atlanta Green Drinks this past Wednesday, June 12th. It was a fun and festive celebration with a great line-up of drinks, food and entertainment from a few fantastic supporters, and from many of the local restaurants that provide grease for our biodiesel as well!
Many of the attendees have been long-time supporters of our biodiesel operations and are a big part of our success this past year, but we also met many new faces that we hope will help share what they learned about the station and biodiesel with their friends and colleagues.
Over the past year we have had the pleasure of providing fuel to a wide range of drivers, from local residents to landscape companies to cross country travelers – Woody Harrelson and New Belgium Brewing Company’s Tour de Fat, just to name a few. Everyone who provides grease or purchases our fuel has been key to our success this year. By using the fuel from our retail station, you are helping prevent carbon dioxide from being emitted into the air, making a real difference in the environment.
Our biodiesel is the only biodiesel in the country produced using 100% solar energy. It is also completely locally sourced, meaning that every cent is pumped right back into the Georgia economy. Our biodiesel also meets the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Standard, which ensures quality and consistency that rivals conventional diesel.
By converting what would be an otherwise burden on our landfills and sewers into the greenest transportation fuel available, we are ensuring that our customers will have a safer and more enjoyable experience behind the wheel knowing that they are having as minimal environmental impact as possible.

We would especially like to thank our summer interns from Emory University and Georgia Conservancy/Atlanta Green Drinks for their help with promotion and set up, and the many vendors providing supplies, raffle prizes or food/beverage for the event. These fantastic supporters include:
Monday Night Brewing, David Lloyd and Technical Specialties, LLC, Pengelly’s Landscape and Garden, Fuller Hot Rods, Fireball Whisky, The Mobile Marlay Food Truck, Bad Dog Taqueria, King + Duke, Brickstore, Skips Chicago Dogs, Chai Pani Decatur, Chickens and Pigs, and more.
Thank you Atlanta, for helping us make this endeavor possible. Sales of the fuel also help support our advocacy work to advance clean energy in the Southeast. Please continue to help us build on our success by telling your friends, contractors, gardeners, farmers and local restaurants about using biodiesel.
