|CEB Biofuel Station
PARTNERSHIP is the weaving thread for station success. In addition to the SACE | CEB partnership, the East Tennesse Clean Fuels Coalition partnership adds the I-75 Green Corridor participation component. ETCFC is manager for the corridor program and responsible for promoting the station to those traveling the I-75 Corridor from Florida to Michigan. The goal is to create the longest alternative fuels corridor in the nation as it traverses six states and just under 1800 miles.

SUSTAINABILITY is the foundation for the CEB biofuel station. In addition to its local core, the CEB production facility is powered 100% by solar polar with no assistance from the grid. The biodiesel is made completely from spent grease with no virgin oil included in the production process.
With strong City of Atlanta support, Denise Quarles - COA Director of the Mayor's Office of Sustainability - was the first in a series of impressive grand opening program speakers. In addition to Denise, Dale Aspy of the U.S. EPA, Region IV, SACE Board President John Noel, Jonathan Overly of ETCFC and McKay Johnson of CEB presented in the ceremony's program. SACE executive director Dr. Stephen Smith served as the Master of Ceremonies.

the ceremony success
Join Elemental Impact for a strong round of applause to SACE and CEB for success in an industry where most closed their operations. It took perseverance, tenacity and ingenuity to create a model program for spent grease collection | biofuel production that makes solid business. The vast majority, if not all, of the Georgia biofuel production facilities in business at the 2009 ZWZ launch are closed.
CEB | SACE exemplify the pioneering spirit that propels Atlanta into the national sustainability spotlight - Thank You!
