A Bit of our Company History

Biodico President & Founder, Russ Teall, was involved in the biodiesel industry in a legislative capacity from the inception of the 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 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.

After several years in biodiesel, Russ saw that, while the biodiesel industry shared many similarities with the petroleum industry, there were also some important differences.  Biodiesel can be made out of a wide variety of different fats and oils rather than just a crude oil byproduct.  Russ saw the need for decentralized modular production facilities that were able to run on whatever feedstocks were available in the region.

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.

Biodico is beginning production at an 18 million gallon per year facility in Fresno County, California and has started construction on a 10 million gallon per year facility in Ventura County, California on Naval Base Ventura County.  The Navy, seeing the strategical importance of distributed fuel generation from a national security standpoint, began working with Biodico under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement in 2003.

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.
