ABOUT | Company Background

Founded in 2001, Blue Sun successfully incorporated biodiesel into the existing petroleum fuels infrastructure by focusing on an integrated approach to addressing market needs.  This approach includes reducing the cost of feedstocks through the development of alternative feedstocks, building biodiesel production facilities that yield the highest quality fuel in the world, researching and developing industry-leading biodiesel-specific fuel additives, and efficiently distributing biodiesel with control and oversight throughout the downstream value chain.  In leveraging our positions throughout this integrated structure, Blue Sun manages biodiesel fuel quality at every step between feedstock and fuel combustion.  

In 2004 Blue Sun developed the proprietary Fusion™ brand of biodiesel fuel. This fuel takes high-quality Blue Sun B100 fuel and blends it to customer specifications and backs the product with Blue Sun industry-leading QA/QC policies, proprietary Blue Sun Fusion™ additive packages, and blending technology to ensure high-quality, differentiated Blue Sun Biodiesel is consistently available throughout our Fusion™ distribution network.

In 2012 Blue Sun bought their St Joe refinery online to produce high-quality biodiesel for wholesale distribution. Early in 2012 Blue Sun also established a downstream terminal presencefor biodiesel in Knoxville, TN.

The Blue Sun team includes the nation's leading biodiesel fuel quality experts and a well-directed and focused management team.

Blue Sun is committed to improving our communities and our environment, and contributing to strengthened national security by reducing U.S. dependence on imported fuel.  In striving for these goals, Blue Sun will further the use of biodiesel to improve local, regional and national air quality.

Blue Sun Fusion helps address four key problems:

  • Rapidly declining reserves of petroleum
  • National security concerns requiring that the U.S. reduce dependence on imported petroleum
  • Air quality issues and pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate global warming
  • Pressure to improve the U.S. farm economy
