RDS Transport fuels with B100, partners with Pacific Biodiesel
Pacific Biodiesel recently began working with RDS Transport Services LLC on Hawaii Island. The trucking firm is transporting tankers of 100 percent biodiesel (B100) to Pacific Current’s Hamakua Energy power generation station located in Honokaʻa. RDS Transport is also fueling its vehicles with the locally made B100.
“It’s gratifying to work with a company that not only delivers our biodiesel but uses our renewable fuel to make those deliveries,” said Kealiʻi Kahaʻapea, supply-chain coordinator for Pacific Biodiesel. “We like to work with companies who understand the quality of the biodiesel we produce and appreciate the reduction in harmful emissions they achieve when using it.”
Scott Peterson, owner of RDS Transport, said, “We’re very pleased with the partnership. The myths I’d heard over the years about the problems with biodiesel have turned out not to be true. We initially began with one dedicated vehicle, but we’re now fueling a second vehicle with Pacific Biodiesel’s B100.”
Pacific Biodiesel’s Hawaii Island refinery utilizes state-of-the-art distillation technology to produce some of the nation’s highest-quality biodiesel available.
