A camera crew visited Lake Erie Biofuels LLC's 45 MMgy biodiesel plant in Erie, Pa., on Nov. 20 to film a Discovery Channel documentary that will air in February. "Shades of Green" will showcase the cutting edge technology and on-site laboratories that Lake Erie Biofuels utilizes at its year-old facility. While emphasizing the importance of biodiesel in today's global economy, "Shades of Green" will provide an inside look into the production of biodiesel and the impact it could have on the planet's future.

Discovery Channel's documentary on biodiesel is part of a series covering alternative energy and sustainable living. Each feature segment of "Shades of Green" will focus on a specific renewable energy source, such as wind, fuel and solar power.

Lake Erie Biofuels uses continuous-flow technology designed by Desmet Ballestra in its multi-feedstock facility that was completed in November 2007. The company has been certified as a BQ-9000 producer and marketer of biodiesel.
