Houston, Texas (PRWEB) January 09, 2014

Akash Energy, Inc., the new player in the Houston energy sector revolutionizing how consumers fuel their lives and companies run their businesses, recently acquired two Houston GASCARD stations located at 5715 S. Wayside Drive, Houston TX 77087 and 9505 Wallisville Rd, Houston, TX 77013. Both stations offer unleaded gasoline and B20 (80% petroleum diesel and 20% biodiesel) that meet industry quality standards and can be used in any diesel engine.

Offering easy access from the City of Houston and the Houston Ship Channel, the stations are positioned near major highways 610 South (between 288 and I-45 South) and 610 North. The stations now accept the following major fleet and credit cards: Fleet One (now under Wright Express but separate card), WEX (Wright Express proper), Fleet Wide, Fuelman / Fuelman Plus, JCB, MasterCard / MasterCard Fleet, Visa / Visa Fleet, Voyager, ComData and GasCard.

“As a leading provider of competitively priced sustainable fuels, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, mitigating greenhouse gases and lessening this nation’s dependence on foreign oil,” says Akash Energy’s Founder and CEO Justin Heller. “By accepting all major fleet and credit cards, we are taking the first step in providing all consumers access to cleaner, sustainable fuels for energy consumption.” Heller notes that vertical integration is key to the success of Akash Energy in creating affordable, renewable fuel options.

Akash uses raw materials made from cooking oil and animal fat, which go to a biodiesel production plant. The products are stored in centrally-located distribution terminals in the community in which it distributes, creating a system that minimizes the carbon footprint, stimulates the local economy and reduces costs. Wholesalers purchase the biodiesel fuel products, which are then sold to retail end-users. Akash’s downstream division, Root Fuel, is a network of retail fueling stations launching in March 2014, which will be supported by integrated production and distribution assets, offering consumers cost-effective sustainable fuels.
