Unique Oakland Biodiesel Project Receives $3.4 Million Grant

Viridis Fuels, a state-of-the-art biodiesel project in Oakland, California, is prepared to receive an official notice of award today for a $3.4 million state grant at a California Energy Commission business meeting in Sacramento. A notice of proposed award to Viridis Fuels was given in December after a revision of the original selection proposal excluded the company. Four other companies, including Crimson Renewable Energy LP, Community Fuels, AltAir Fuels LLC and UrbanX Renewables Group Inc., were also included in the award proposal.
