Founded in 1995, Pacific Biodiesel is Hawaii's award-winning and internationally recognized producer of renewable fuels and the only commercial biofuel producer in the state. This Maui-based company established and operated the very first retail biodiesel pump in America and for the past two decades has built a solid reputation as a leading pioneer in the renewable energy industry. With a nameplate production capacity of 5.5 million gallons annually, Pacific Biodiesel's Big Island plant utilizes state-of-the art distillation technology to produce the country’s highest-quality biodiesel, the first U.S. fuel to be certified by the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance. The company is also involved in many sustainable agriculture-related projects - including testing sunflowers in Hawaii as a potential year-round feedstock for producing biodiesel.
Guests will be guided through a walking tour of the biodiesel refinery and the adjacent crushing mill used for processing agricultural feedstock for fuel and co-products.
There will be two tours available:
Maximum of 20 attendees per tour. Please state in the comments on your registration what tour time you would like to attend.
