By Biodiesel of Las Vegas | July 09, 2013

Biodiesel of Las Vegas has received its BQ-9000 certification from the National Biodiesel Board, making it the first and only biodiesel producer in Nevada to receive this certification. The Las Vegas facility is among a select group of 46 other biodiesel producers in the U.S.

“We are pleased to welcome Biodiesel of Las Vegas into the BQ-9000 program,” said National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission Chairman Scott Fenwick. “Their efforts to become BQ-9000-certified show their continued commitment to fuel quality and will help ensure they are delivering the highest quality fuel to their customers.”

According to the NBB, to receive accreditation, companies must pass rigorous review and inspection of their quality control process by an independent auditor to ensure the program is fully implemented.

“Becoming BQ-9000-certified shows our industry that we are committed to producing quality fuel for our community,” said Brandon Buff, vice president of Biodiesel of Las Vegas. “This certification also reinforced to our team what we have accomplished and becomes a milestone in our roadmap for the future.”

The National Biodiesel Accreditation Program is a cooperative and voluntary program for the accreditation of producers and marketers of biodiesel called BQ-9000. The program is a unique combination of the quality standard for biodiesel, ASTM D6751, and a quality systems program that includes storage, sampling, testing, blending, shipping, distribution, and fuel management practices.

Biodiesel of Las Vegas, a subsidiary of New-Com Inc., is a 4 MMgy biodiesel production facility located in the Las Vegas area, near Nellis Air Force Base. The facility sits on 7 acres of land and uses a sophisticated, state-of-the-art process to ensure a consistent and quality product. The facility is capable of storing over 4 million gallons of product and has enough storage for 60 railcars, with the ability to load or unload railcars from any spot at the facility.
