What is Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is a clean-burning alternative diesel fuel that can be made by a variety of feedstocks such as animal fats, vegetable oils, and used cooking oil. We collect used cooking oil from restaurants, stadiums, cafeterias, and food processors in most metro areas on the West Coast. We then process used cooking oil into ultra-low carbon biodiesel to sell locally, reducing harmful emission in our communities.

SeQuential biodiesel is a cleaner, non-toxic diesel alternative with an ultra-low carbon footprint that’s up to 85% lower than petroleum diesel.

We make our fuel from used cooking oil collected from local restaurants and businesses all along the West Coast. We then refine and sell it locally to reduce the impact of transport and to keep this valuable resource – and your fuel dollars – in the local economy.

Any diesel equipment can use biodiesel, from cars, trucks, farm equipment, generators, oil furnaces and more. We offer a range of blends, from our popular B20 biodiesel blend (20% biodiesel, 80% petroleum diesel) to our cleanest and most sustainable B99 biodiesel blend.

We are part of Crimson Renewable Energy. The largest ultra-low carbon biodiesel producer in the West Cost. Learn more about our biodiesel production in Salem, OR, and Bakersfield, CA.

Highest Quality

We helped set the industry standard for biodiesel quality. Every drop of fuel we make meets or exceeds ASTM standards. We’re also a BQ-9000®-certified biodiesel producer and marketer, and our fuel scores a carbon-intensity rating of 15 under the California LCFS—one of the lowest-carbon fuels available.
