About Us

Piedmont Biofuels is a worker and member owned cooperative. Our mission is to lead the grassroots sustainability movement in North Carolina by using and encouraging the use of clean, renewable biofuels.

We are involved in a wide variety of undertakings in support of this mission:

We provide pure biodiesel (B100) to the community. We provide a space where worker members can make their own fuel from waste vegetable oil. We have a USDA Research Farm where we do run a market garden and do oilseed crop research. We do education and outreach on both biodiesel and engine modifications that enable people to use straight vegetable oil (SVO) as fuel. We lobby the North Carolina legislature, as well as our national representatives, on behalf of biodiesel and alternative fuels. We are integrally involved in the advocacy of renewable energy.
