Using Waste Cooking Oil, Soybean Oil, Waste Animal Fats, or any of EPA’s approved range of biogenic oils, our facility can produce up to 5,000,000 gallons of Biodiesel fuel per year. Our raw feedstocks are tested, filtered, de-watered and de-gummed; then chemically converted to biodiesel. Excess solvents are distilled out of finished biodiesel and its glycerin byproduct, for re-use within our closed-loop process. Finished biodiesel is certified and loaded-out to customers’ tank trucks. Every gallon we make means 1 less gallon of petroleum diesel to be imported into our local market. Each gallon contributes 80% less greenhouse gases than the fossil-based gallon that it displaces.
Built in 2007, Southeast Biodiesel’s manufacturing facility is ideally located to serve the biodiesel supply needs of coastal South Carolina and the surrounding region.
Our Multi-Feedstock Facility
Our Strategic Location
Proud to be located in the city of North Charleston in coastal South Carolina, our company enjoys both the friendly business climate and the year-round pleasant living climate of the Low Country. Located in the former US Navy Yard at Charleston harbor, we are close to the port, as well as terminal storage and rail facilities. Within easy trucking distance of the ports of Jacksonville, FL, Savannah, GA, and Wilmington, NC, our location offers convenient loading opportunities for the bulk fuels industry. From our location there is ready access to the raw material suppliers and finished product consumers throughout the southeastern United States.
Our Commitment to Quality
After employee and public safety, our quality management processes are the most critically important part of our business. Our product is bought by organizations with stringent quality requirements; is consumed in expensive diesel engines and it contributes to atmospheric emissions (albeit 80% less than petroleum diesel). As a fuel it is monitored for taxation by SC-Dept. of Revenue and the IRS. Precautions against the risks of pollution, whether occurring at the point of production or as the fuel is consumed, are regulated and supervised by SC-DHEC and the EPA. We are proud of our record for meeting and exceeding testing and auditing programs mandated by all of these agencies.
