Blue Sun Biodiesel to Unveil First Biodiesel Pump in Fort Collins

Grand opening celebrates Ft. Collin's commitment to economic development & cleaner burning fuel

Fort Collins, Colorado: June 30, 2004 -- Blue Sun Biodiesel, a Colorado-based agriculture energy company, is unveiling the first public biodiesel pump in Fort Collins on July 9 th at Poudre Valley Coop, 225 NW Frontage Road. A number of government officials, fleet managers, and community members will be attending the grand opening, which includes an informational forum at 3:30 pm for regional fleet managers and farmers.

Blue Sun Biodiesel welcomes keynote speakers Senator Peggy Reeves and Mayor Ray Martinez at 5 p.m. They will speak to the general audience about the important role biodiesel has in Colorado’s agricultural, economic, and environmental future.

Area businesses that use Blue Sun fuel will be tending booths and local auto dealers will be there to exhibit and offer test drives of the newest diesel cars and trucks on the market today. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony and other highlights — including the nationally recognized Cummins diesel dragster that runs on Blue Sun B100 (100% biodiesel).

“Our customers asked for biodiesel,” says Ed Race, Operations Manager, Poudre Valley Coop. “After careful consideration, we found Blue Sun B20 and B100 to be the only real alternatives on the market today—in terms of performance and reliability—to traditional diesel fuel. Blue Sun biodiesel also offers rural economic benefits to farmers in the form of oilseed crops and considerable benefits for the environment.”

Blue Sun B20 can be used in ALL compression-ignition engines that run on diesel fuel without any engine modifications. The potential market includes all diesel-powered cars, trucks, buses, tractors, trains, boats, irrigation systems, mining equipment, and generators.

“The impact of widespread biodiesel usage in the area can dramatically improve air quality, while creating jobs and generating new revenues through sustainable agricultural practices,” says Jeff Probst, President and CEO of Blue Sun. “When our state -of-the-art biodiesel production facility comes online, it will create 240 new jobs and inject $45 million of new income annually into the region.”

“It’s great to see so much interest from private companies in our hometown where this project started 3 years ago,” said John Long, co-founder and director of Blue Sun Biodiesel.
