Imperium Renewables

Description: 

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made from vegetable oils, waste oils or fats that is compatible with existing fueling infrastructure and diesel vehicles. At Imperium Renewables through significant investments in technology innovation we are fundamentally changing the economics of making this fuel. We are making Biodiesel an alternative for today and for the future. Every gallon of Biodiesel consumed reduces our dependence on foreign oil, reduces emissions and supports local economies.

Imperium Renewables, Inc. was founded as Seattle Biodiesel, LLC in 2004 by John Plaza to commercialize his new design for Biodiesel refining. Saybr Contractors, the leading petroleum facility contractor in the Northwest, entered into a joint venture to construct the first commercial implementation of this biodiesel refinery technology in 2004. By early 2005, the refinery opened for business. Imperium Renewables, Inc. operates the Seattle refinery as a wholly owned subsidiary under the name Seattle Biodiesel, LLC with a yearly capacity of 5 million gallons per year. Seattle Biodiesel sells directly to leading fuel distributors including Pacific Northwest Energy Company (SC Oils), Associated Petroleum Products, Pettit Oil and SeaPort Petroleum among others.
