Biodico President & Founder, Russ Teall, was involved in the biodiesel industry in a legislative capacity from the inception of the biodiesel industry in the US in 1993. The first National Biodiesel Board annual conference, an event which now draws thousands of people and features a convention center expo floor, consisted of a couple of dozen people discussing plans for the new alternative energy industry.
Most people and organizations were focused on a petroleum refinery model of biodiesel production, centralized facilities with hundreds of millions of gallons of production capacity bringing in a single type of oil from a wide and disparate area and redistributing the fuel to a similarly disparate area.
Biodico, then called Biodiesel Industries, began commercial production of biodiesel at a three million gallon facility in Las Vegas in 2000 utilizing waste cooking oil from the city and surrounding suburbs. Since then, production facilities have been built for clients in Colorado, Texas, and Australia.
The name change from Biodiesel Industries to Biodico came about as the company expanded its focus from biodiesel production alone to the integration of other types of renewable energy solutions.
