Blue Ridge Biofuels Producing sustainable biodiesel from regional used cooking oil since 2005.

Blue Ridge Biofuels is a great example of what biodiesel can do for communities in North Carolina. We started making biodiesel at our factory in Asheville, NC in 2005. and we’ve moved up to producing 40.000 gallons of biodiesel every month! Biodiesel is a clean, renewable, locally sourced fuel that improves North Carolina’s economy, environment, and energy independence.

Our Mission

Biodiesel is a clean-burning renewable alternative to petroleum diesel fuel.

It can be used in any diesel engine, including on-road vehicles, off-road equipment, and #2 home heating oil furnaces. No modifica- tions are necessary to use biodiesel, which is often sold blended with petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is better for the environment because it has lower greenhouse gas emissions than conventional petroleum diesel. It also provides superior mechanical benefits and extends engine life.

Blue Ridge Biofuels is a community-based biodiesel manufacturer committed to building the local alternative energy economy by pro- ducing affordable clean fuels for communities in Western North Carolina and the greater Charlotte area through sustainable business practices that offer opportunities for community development, local jobs, and biofuel education.
