Recently, the US Navy has made an impassioned commitment to getting half its energy fuels from renewable sources by 2020. They have elected to roll out this plan and see it to its fruition by choosing to contract companies that process highly contaminated waste oils such as yellow grease and brown grease in addition to plant oils, microbial oils, tallows and all animal based oils.


Overall, the US biodiesel producers made nearly 1.5 billion gallons in 2015, according to the National Biodiesel Board. Second only to raw soybean oil, recycled used cooking oil collection was responsible for supplying 17 percent of the raw material that was used to create biodiesel. Furthermore, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, “It [biodiesel] is a cleaner-burning replacement for petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel meets both the biomass-based diesel and overall advanced biofuel requirement of the renewable fuel standard (RFS), a federal program that requires transportation fuel sold in the U.S. to contain a minimum volume of renewable fuels.” (


Many business and government agencies are supporting and advocating this movement for the transition to using biodiesels as opposed to petroleum based fuels. In fact, several airlines around the world have signed multi-year contracts for the supply of sustainable biofuel. Los Angeles International Airport as well as Oslo International Airports are just two such aviation facilities on board with this initiative. The biofuel they will be purchasing will be produced by a local biofuel refinery, thus further supporting local businesses. So far, the recycling of used cooking oil to be repurposed into biodiesel is quickly becoming a trend as we see more and more organizations and businesses incorporating biofuel into their regular refueling process. The airport initiative so far has managed to achieve a whopping 20 percent reduction in Carbon Dioxide emissions per passenger so far!
It is clear to see that sustainable biofuel derived from used cooking oil collection is currently one of the most effective ways to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions. We at Green Star Biodiesel are very passionate about this mission statement. We pride ourselves in offering our consumers in the greater Florida region a cost-effective, reliable, safe and thorough service for proper collection and processing and recycling of your used cooking oil and yellow grease. We are very proud to be contributing to environmental initiatives to reduction carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions.
