World's first biofuel plant powered by renewables goes live today

World's first biofuel plant powered by renewables goes live today

Biofuels are about to get even greener with the opening of the world’s first biofuel facility operated totally on renewable energy sources. An unfortunate consequence of most renewable and green energy sources is the amount of carbon input required to produce the energy. California-based biofuel and bioenergy company, Biodico is turning that adage on its head with the launch of its Westside Facility, the first-ever facility of its kind to use renewable heat and clean power generated onsite. The facility will use that power to produce a total of 20 million gallons of biodiesel each year. Biodico’s plant is set to go live with a launch party in Fresno today.
