Latest Project:
Grown Fuel Biodiesel Plant in PNG opens
Grown Fuel has built another biodiesel plant in yet another country. The plant was built in Australia and shipped to PNG where it was met by Grown Fuel owner Paul Martin. It took four weeks to turn a renovated building into a fuel manufacturing facility, including installing the plant, pipe work and services, commissioning and training plant operators. On-going operator support is provided by Grown Fuel. Lab fuel quality results confirmed that the plant produces biodiesel which exceeds ASTM biodiesel fuel quality standards. Welcome to biodiesel PNG!

Grown Fuel starts work on Port Moresby's first used cooking oil (UCO) biodiesel plant
The plant is being built at Pacific Adventist University (PAU), the largest University in Papua New Guinea. The plant will be able to process all of the estimated 20 ton per month UCO generated in commercial kitchens in Port Moresby into ASTM D6751-08 B100 standardised biodiesel. To date there is no UCO collection in Port Moresby. Grown Fuel is designing, building and commissioning the plant, and will then train plant operators and provide on-going assistance to make sure that the highest fuel quality is achieved. PAU biodiesel project team is to be congratulated for their determination in getting this project off the ground.

Benefits of the project include:
    * Lower diesel fuel costs for PAU.
    * Lower green house gas emissions for PAU.
    * Removal of UCO from Port Moresby's sewer system.
    * Research opportunities for PAU students.
    * A local biodiesel facility to assist PNG in adopting its own Biodiesel
       fuel standard.
