Sources of Biodiesel

Jacob Kingston

A mechanical engineer by profession, Jacob Kingston is a member of the Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce in Utah. Jacob Kingston is an expert in biodiesel and currently serves as the CEO of Washakie Renewable Energy.

Founded in 2006, Washakie Renewable Energy (WRE Group) is headquartered in Plymouth, Utah. It maintains a biofuel, chemical, feed and mill, and recycling division, and has grown to become one of the largest biodiesel producers in the region, capable of producing upwards of 20 million gallons annually.
Biodiesel, technically known as methyl estersis, is a type of renewable fuel that is made through a chemical process known as transesterification. Biodiesel can be produced from recycled sources such as used cooking oil, discarded grease and other waste. Another common source of biodiesel is oilseed crops such as soybeans. By relying on readily available sources that would otherwise go to waste, biodiesel provides clean energy that decreases reliance on traditional fossil fuels.
