Green Fuels Ltd. is the leading supplier of decentralized waste-to-biodiesel technology. The company has changed biodiesel production from an expensive, feedstock-intensive, and cumbersome operation, to a modular one that can be deployed to used cooking oil collection points, cities, and island communities, or it can be scaled at a central facility as feedstock supplies increase. Green Fuels has equipment running in over 80 countries, producing over 400 million liters of fuel every year, equating to an annual carbon dioxide saving of over 1 million tons. More recently, Green Fuels has developed a process to upscale biodiesel to renewable aviation fuel and plans to scale up its pilot facility to a commercial scale.
