Biodiesel Facility

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel produced from agricultural resources such as vegetable oils. Most biodiesel is made from soybean oil; however canola oil, sunflower oil, recycled cooking oils, food waste, and animal fats are also used.

Biodiesel production facilities that produce biodiesel from waste cooking oil and who produce more than 2,500-gallons of biodiesel per year must obtain a Class II Solid Waste Management System License. The license must be renewed annually. Fees associated with the license application and license renewal are noted below.

Biodiesel production facilities that produce biodiesel from waste cooking oil and who produce less than 2,500-gallons per year for personal use must obtain a Small Biodiesel Production Facility license. The license is free, but requires an annual license renewal.
