Fueling Support

Willie Nelson’s use of biodiesel draws publicity at Red Rocks
By Erin Voegele | July 15, 2011

Country singer Willie Nelson and his crew continued with their commitment to biodiesel at a recent tour stop in Colorado. RecycOil LLC and the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance teamed up to fuel Nelson’s vehicles with biodiesel the morning his Country Throwdown tour stopped at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
“It is a terrific honor to fuel up Willie Nelson's tour as he is an artist that has fueled up country music fans across the USA,” said RecycOil CEO Aaron Perry. “His support of farmers and the biodiesel industry are testament to his commitment to rural communities and the production of sustainable, American-made biofuels.”


RecycOil recycles waste cooking oil from more than 1,600 restaurants, businesses and sporting and cultural venues located in Colorado and the southern region of Wyoming. The company not only supplies biodiesel producers with recycled oil feedstock, but also partners with fuel distributors to provide biodiesel to customers in Colorado.


According to Tanner Watt, SBA associate director, the organization's goal is to connect biodiesel users with local biodiesel providers. “It’s about educating consumers and giving them options so they can make purchasing decisions that benefit their communities and the environment.”


Last year, the SBA introduced its Sustainability Report Card, which is aimed at summer music tours. Artists involved in the program this summer will use ABA tools to help source and evaluate biodiesel and biodiesel blends on their summer tours in order to purchase and use the most sustainably produced fuel in each market they visit.
