Sustainable Oil Service recognized for excellence in environmental protection
Boulder, Colorado – Biodiesel recycler Sustainable Oil Service (S.O.S.) is pleased to announce that its Food-to-Fuel Biodiesel Program partnership with Boulder County has been presented with a 2011 National Association of Counties Achievement Award in the Environmental Protection and Energy category. The County received the award on July 21st at the Boulder County Commissioners Office.

This award represents Sustainable Oil Service's commitment to protecting the environment of Boulder County through innovation in producing clean burning biodiesel made solely from recycled waste cooking oils.

The biodiesel from Sustainable Oil Service fuels the Boulder County municipal vehicle fleet and fulfills the county's quantity, quality and price requirements. The County has saved three cents per gallon by using the recycled oil from S.O.S., which utilizes waste cooking oil from local restaurants, thus reforming the "food versus fuel" to "food-to-fuel" debate. Since July of 2010, S.O.S. has assisted Boulder County in removing 210,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air through fueling its fleet.

In addition to making biodiesel, S.O.S. creates a biodegradable cleaning agent as a byproduct that is given to the restaurants where the waste oil is collected. The use of this cleaning product helps to close another loop in the fuel system, further contributing to cleaner air for Boulder County.

Sustainable Oil Service demonstrates its full dedication to environmental protection through its unique status as a zero-waste facility by converting all waste streams into recycled products. The facility runs a biodiesel-powered collection fleet and its facilities are 100% wind powered.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
