Dogpatch Biofuels
San Francisco, CA

Dogpatch Biofuels is San Francisco's only public high-blend biodiesel station, providing the city and the greater San Francisco Bay Area with a reliable source for the highest-quality renewable biodiesel on the market since its founding in 2008.

Biodiesel is better for the environment because it is made from renewable resources and has far lower emissions compared to petroleum diesel. It is less toxic than table salt and biodegrades as fast as sugar. Produced domestically with natural resources, its use decreases our dependence on imported fuel and contributes to our own economy.

The fuel we dispense here at Dogpatch Biofuels is derived entirely from recycled waste vegetable oil, at a 99.9 percent bio-content level in the finished ASTM-certified product (also known as B99.9). Compare that with the B20 biodiesel blends seen at other stations, which only contain 20 percent bio-content and 80 percent petroleum! The biodiesel we sell has some of the lowest carbon intensity scores currently available in the transportation sector according to scientific "cradle-to-grave" analyses.

With the recent addition of a convenient payment terminal, we now offer the flexibility of 24-hour cardlock access complete with detailed invoicing for fleets, and an after-hours fueling program for enrolled retail customers. (See our Web site for after-hours enrollment details.) Are you a business owner or operator with a fleet to fuel? Ask us how we can help green your fleet to meet sustainability goals -- using your existing diesel equipment -- with the flexibility of both the aforementioned station access cards and our new onsite fuel delivery services for commercial and municipal clients.

This $5,000 prize would be crucial to help Dogpatch Biofuels achieve its plan to expand the reach of renewable biodiesel into commercial fleets throughout the urban hub of the San Francisco Bay Area.  Our plan will not only yield significant global environmental results by significantly curtailing greenhouse gas emissions through directly removing and replacing petroleum fuels in the busy service vehicles of the city, but also by reducing urban smog attributed to these same diesel vehicles - a major cause of respiratory ailments in disadvantaged inner city areas.  We hope you will consider giving us your vote, and thank you for your consideration.
