Pacific Biodiesel receives ASME award

By | October 01, 2004
Maui, Hawaii-based Pacific Biodiesel recently received the American Society of Mechanical Engineers-Hawaii Section's annual Outstanding Project/Design Competition Award. The award recognizes outstanding mechanical engineering-related projects or designs in Hawaii, Guam and American Samoa that have been completed within the past five years. Pacific Biodiesel earned high marks for the design of its Sand Island biodiesel plant. The plant was built in 2000 and uses grease trap waste as a production feedstock. The first Pacific Biodiesel plant was built on Maui in 1996 as the answer to grave concerns over potential environmental and health problems resulting from restaurant grease clogging the Central Maui Landfill.

"Being a mechanical engineer by trade, I am thrilled by this award," Pacific Biodiesel President Bob King told Biodiesel Magazine. "It's an honor and also a validation of our biodiesel process as well as our physical facility."
