PTG Studios is pleased to announce the selection of Biodiesel of Las Vegas for its innovative, educational television series, Pulse on America. The company will be featured in a segment on Renewable Energy Solutions in our “Eye on Technology” series.

Rising fuel prices and stringent demands on pollutants have left consumers looking for alternatives to petroleum products. Biodiesel is a suggested alternative. It is produced by collecting and processing used vegetable oil from restaurants.

Biodiesel of Las Vegas supplies over 5,000 fleet vehicles, 1,250 Clark County school buses, 300 municipal vehicles, the United States Air Force, UNLV and countless other consumers with clean-burning, efficient, and cost-competitive fuel. Ben Kulick, lead scientist for Biodiesel of Las Vegas, is witnessing that customer list grow. “The demand for Biodiesel is expanding from large fleets and municipalities to individual drivers. We are working hard to keep up with the growing demand, and a new 30 million gallon per year facility is already underway.”

Biodiesel reduces emissions significantly, and is the first alternative fuel to have fully completed the Health Effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act. The product’s exhaust is also less offensive. The use of biodiesel and its blends results in a noticeable decrease in exhaust odor, which can be a real benefit in confined spaces. Since biodiesel is oxygenated, it burns more completely than petroleum diesel. As a result, users have also reported a significant reduction in eye irritation.

With a significantly higher flashpoint (the temperature at which the fuel ignites) than regular #2 diesel, Biodiesel is one of the safest fuels to use, handle and store.

By using domestically produced, renewable fuels like biodiesel, the United States can reduce dependence on foreign countries for oil. It has the highest energy balance of any fuel, further increasing its value in our energy portfolio. While the plant location is Las Vegas, corporate headquarters are in San Luis Obispo, CA.
