  • A fully operable blending facility which can blend biodiesel/diesel blends at any preference
  • A “Scully Loading System” which can load biodiesel at a speed of 400 GPM (gallons per minute).
  • Equipment to handle a variety of feedstocks, including soy bean oil and used cooking oil
  • An on-site laboratory, which ensures that every drop of biodiesel we produce meets ASTM D 6751 standards.
