New Leaf Gets $512K for Renewable-Based Biodiesel
San Diego-based New Leaf Biofuel has just received a California Energy Commission grant for $512,000 to boost its output of renewable-based biodiesel.
“We are expanding our production plant from 2 million gallons per year to 5 million gallons, and installing a cogeneration system which will reduce the carbon intensity of the biodiesel we produce here,” says CEO Jennifer Case.
New Leaf collects used cooking oil from more than 1,500 restaurants and industrial kitchens and converts it into biodiesel, says CEC, noting that the firm’s customers include the U.S. Navy, and the cities of San Diego, Oceanside and Chula Vista. Other customers include Allied Waste in Chula Vista, and San Diego’s Wherever Limousine.
New Leaf Biofuel is at Booth 104.
