March 16, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Sparks, NV - Green Fuels America, Inc.
"As Lt. Governor and head if the Nevada Economic Development Commission, I am here today to announce that Green Fuels America will manufacture its line of commercial biodiesel processors in Nevada, an example of which is the 5000 gallon per day FuelMatic biodiesel processor behind me. Jobs are being imported from the UK because of the tax and business friendly environment, and vendor skill base here in Nevada. Biodiesel is a sustainable replacement for petroleum diesel made from crushed oil seed crops (such as soybean, camelina, etc), waste cooking oil, and animal fats (chicken and beef fat). When burned it's CO2 emissions are 85% less than those of petroleum diesel. Manufacturing here, Green Fuels America will take advantage of US Federal programs such as NAFTA, CAFTA, Gold Key Matching Services, and EXIM Bank loan guarantees. Green Fuels also plans to use Nevada State programs administered through the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), such as employee training programs. Currently there are 21 FuelMatic processors running world-wide in England, Hong Kong, Mexico, Ireland, and Croatia. The FuelMatic you see here today will be installed in Massachusetts in the spring. Green Fuels America, Inc., incorporated in Nevada, taken together with its parent company Green Fuels Ltd. (UK) is the world-wide leader in commercial biodiesel processors that are factory built, and shipped in sea containers to customers sites."
"We believe that we will be able to manufacture six of these commercial biodiesel processors in Nevada this year using local sub-contractors, the majority will be for export. We estimate that this decision will create at least 10 new jobs in 2011 in the Reno/Carson City region in manufacturing, engineering, and production control between Green Fuels and our sub-contractors/vendors said Greg Springer, VP and GM, of Green Fuels America."
