The environmental revolution has created a global push for cleaner, more sustainable sources of energy. This means that while biodiesel has certainly gained a great deal of popularity, there are a variety of alternative fuel types. Wondering how biodiesel stacks up against the other major alternative fuels available on the market? We’ll compare a few of the most common.
Over the past several decades, widespread public interest in the development of more environmentally friendly energy practices has stimulated a variety of green innovations. Eventually, the government joined in on the process, authorizing the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program in 2005. The RFS program was developed to help expand the nation’s access to renewable fuels while diminishing our production of greenhouse gases.
What would you say if the vegetable oil your fast-food French fries were cooked in could fuel your car? At the SeQuential production plant in Salem, Oregon, turning used fry oil into environmentally friendly biodiesel is what we do every day. Here’s how we give used fats, oil and grease (FOG) a second life.
Almost all vehicles that run on diesel are capable of running on biodiesel without having to perform engine modifications. If you’re looking to use cleaner fuel in your next ride, check out some of these biodiesel compatible vehicles that are currently available in the U.S.
Throughout the West Coast – from Seattle, Washington down to San Francisco, California – SeQuential collects used cooking oil from restaurants, universities, zoos, food processers and home chefs. After it leaves your restaurant, you may be wondering: where does all that waste oil go?
Maintaining your grease trap is an important part of managing a restaurant. If you fail to stay up to date on your maintenance schedule, you could face hefty fines and cause major issues for your kitchen.

Give us a call at 800-447-3794 to schedule a service, so you can keep your kitchen running smoothly.
Created from plant-based materials and refined with a clean, low-waste process, biodiesel offers more than its fair share of advantages over alternative fuel sources. In fact, SeQuential biodiesel has the lowest carbon footprint of any diesel alternative available on the West Coast. But why is biodiesel a top choice for a healthier planet? Consider these three simple reasons.
Low carbon and proven to produce fewer emissions than standard petroleum diesel, biodiesel is an alternative fuel option that’s seen consistent growth in popularity over the years. And that’s for good reason – it’s simple to use in virtually any modern diesel vehicle, it’s becoming widely available across the nation and its environmental impact is considerably less than traditional alternatives. Searching for real-deal evidence of the advantages of biodiesel? Look no further than three major U.S. metropolitan areas putting biodiesel, just like the fuels made by SeQuential, to work in their fleets.
Rising air temperatures, shrinking ice sheets, warmer oceans – the threat of global warming continues to loom, pushing society to find alternative energy solutions that minimize harmful emissions. Along the way, we’ve harnessed biodiesel, which has been proven to have a significantly lower carbon footprint than its petroleum-based counterparts. Keep reading, and we’ll tell you how biodiesel can help mitigate the effects of global warming.
As the push for a greener society continues, biodiesel has garnered quite the reputation as a low carbon alternative to petroleum diesel. However, while you probably know that it is derived from vegetable oils, you may not know how biodiesel is produced. Here, we’ll guide you through the biodiesel refinement process – SeQuential style.
