Texas BioDiesel builds, owns, and operates biodiesel production facilities that revolutionize the energy industry. Biodiesel has been an accepted and viable fuel alternative for many years, but our exclusive patented technology means that only Texas BioDiesel can:
- produce diesel from the widest variety of food and non-food based crops
- produce biodiesel from used oils and fats that would otherwise be required to be disposed of in landfills
- produce the least expensive, cleanest-burning biodiesel fuel available today
But it’s not just the technology that makes us unique. Our executive and management team and our partners in government and the energy industry have proven expertise in every aspect of establishing new and major programs for:
- community-wide conversion from farming for one purpose to another, including grass-roots education and support
- building and operating extrusion and oil production facilities
Our mission is to establish renewable energy facilities that will improve the economy, provide energy security, revitalize farming communities, and help eliminate environmental problems.
Winds of Change Model
Texas BioDiesel Corporation’s proven model to accomplish this mission is called the “Winds of Change.” Previous successes include major initiatives funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID) and the United
Nations Development Program (UNDP) where, over a number of years, our team worked with the government of Bolivia to help subsistence farmers find alternative crops to coca as a way to reduce the drug trade into the United States. Farmers were taught how to substitute crops, form cooperatives, and sell their product directly into more lucrative markets.
This foundation of results for agricultural and economic development provides a relevant and valuable model for migrating existing farming communities from being wholly-reliant on food-based crops to integrating year-round, income-producing, energy-based crops. It also provides the model for establishing facilities, systems, and processes for getting that energy to market in the most efficient manner.
The Winds of Change Model is:
- Centered on sustainable economic development, renewable biofuels, and bioenergy technology
- Based on a national and international effort for cooperative research, development, and commercialization
- Carried out in collaboration with national laboratories, leading universities, private corporations, non-government agencies, and individual government bodies
The Winds of Change Model is used to:
- Develop biofuel and biopower processes that are price competitive with traditional fuel sources
- Research new, potential non-food energy crops for use as feedstock
- Work with rural farms and urban communities to help achieve true economic improvement through adoption of renewable fuel and power strategies
