Pleasant Valley Biofuels starts operations at new Utah location
Pleasant Valley Biofuels has started production in its new location, Washington City, Utah, this month. This facility will operate at a capacity of 5.2 MMgy. The company was established in January 2008 in American Falls, Idaho, and completed relocation this summer.
“Pleasant Valley Biofuels operates with a vision that is dedicated to the production of clean, renewable and sustainable alternative fuels from organic oils,” the company states. “The vision for the future is to provide an increased amount of the highest quality biodiesel. Our products include biodiesel, RIN generation and glycerin.”
The company says its new location in southern Utah is a great logistic location with buyers and suppliers in California and Las Vegas nearby. “We have been working with local cities and private companies to convert their fleets to run on biodiesel,” said Jen Keller, Pleasant Valley Biofuels’ vice president of operations. “As one of the more energy-efficient-driven cities in Utah, Pleasant Valley Biofuels is proud to call Washington its home.”
Pleasant Valley Biofuels mostly uses waste vegetable oil as biodiesel feedstock, but it can also process waste animal fats.
