Bio-Lipid oil can also be used to produce one of the lowest cost and most environmentally friendly fuels known to man: bio-diesel. Bio-diesel made from bio-lipid oil, from micro-algae, burns cleaner, produces less CO2 (with no sulfur dioxide emissions) than petroleum based diesel fuels, and it's renewable and sustainable.

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
