ABOUT | Company Background

“Founded in 2001, Blue Sun is working to incorporate 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 and production of low-cost dryland oilseed crops and next-generation feedstocks like algae and jatropha, establishing integrated oilseed crush facilities for supply chain efficiency, 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 to end-users with control and oversight throughout the downstream value chain.  In leveraging our industry-leading positions throughout this integrated structure, Blue Sun manages biodiesel fuel quality at every step between feedstock development and fuel combustion.  

Upstream of distribution, our feedstock development efforts are ensuring the highest-yielding, highest-quality feedstock oils for production into B100 using proprietary refining technology that results in 99.9% pure biodiesel.  Downstream of biodiesel production, Blue Sun's industry-leading QA/QC policies, proprietary Blue Sun Fusion additive packages, blending technology, and exclusive contracts with leading fuel distributors ensure high-quality, differentiated Blue Sun Biodiesel is consistently available throughout our distribution network.

The Blue Sun team includes the nation's leading biodiesel fuel quality experts, participation from top agronomists at CSU, KSU and the University of Nebraska, growers in the High Plains region, 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, all while supporting U.S. agriculture and strengthening the rural economy.

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
