It’s no secret.  Bringing a new fuel to market isn’t easy. In the last hundred years the world’s vehicles have run on only a few fuels; first gasoline and diesel, then ethanol, and now biomass based diesel. That’s it. World Energy has been at the very forefront of establishing the biomass based diesel industry every step of the way.  Biomass based diesel now contributes nearly 2 billion gallons annually to the American fuel tank and nearly 8 billion gallons worldwide.

In production, distribution, trading, risk management, finance, operations, regulatory compliance, market analysis, systems integration, public advocacy and every other aspect of our industry, World Energy personnel are at the forefront.  Our partners are innovators too bring their own value.  To us, collaboration and partnerships based on shared strengths are the central tenants of building enduring value.
