New Mexico's first commercial
Rio Valley Biofuels, New Mexico's first and one of the Southwest's only commercial producers is located in Anthony, New Mexico. We began commercially producing biodiesel in July of 2006 using recycled oil from local food processors. Our feedstocks include a large variety of lipid oil sources including used vegetable oil, crude cottonseed, tallow, sunflower, canola, soy, palm, and a number of others.
Our continuing goal is to provide affordable biodiesel to businesses and farmers in our local community here in southern New Mexico. We believe that selling locally produced fuel will help businesses in the community who would like to use renewable fuel, but cannot afford the freight costs associated with bringing fuel from as far away as the Midwest.
All biodiesel produced at our facility is produced to ASTM D6751 specifications. Our quality control program consists of extensive documentation of each batch produced along with testing at an independent certified lab. Rio Valley Biofuels is a member of the National Biodiesel Board and our facility is registered with the IRS, the EPA, and New Mexico.
We are happy to be the first commercial producer of biodiesel in New Mexico. We have worked hard to educate the local community about the benefits of biodiesel as a renewable source of energy.
