PARTNERS AND SUBSIDIARIES
Willie and Annie Nelson first learned about biodiesel when Annie bought a diesel car and became a customer of Pacific Biodiesel on Maui in 2003. The Nelsons now drive only biodiesel vehicles, including Willie’s tour bus, and are invested in several biodiesel ventures with PacBio. They are founding members in the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance with Bob and Kelly King of Pacific Biodiesel.
Pacific Biodiesel Logistics
Founded in the early 2000’s to gather commercial used cooking oil and keep it out of the Oahu landfill, Pacific Biodiesel Logistics is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Biodiesel. Pacific Biodiesel Logistics’ quality service recycling operation now collects used cooking oil and trap grease from restaurants, hotels and other food service facilities ensuring that FOG (fats, oils and grease) no longer has to be an environmental hazard for Hawaii.
Maiden Hawaii Naturals
Maiden Hawaii Naturals, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Biodiesel Technologies. The company produces premium plant-based oils and natural ingredients for cosmetic and culinary applications. Pacific Biodiesel recycles waste cooking oils from restaurants statewide for use in the production of biodiesel. Now the locally made culinary oils produced by Maiden Hawaii Naturals are offered to Hawaii’s chefs and the used cooking oil is recycled to produce a 100% renewable fuel for a cleaner, greener Hawaii – that’s full circle sustainability!
Maui EKO Systems
Maui EKO Systems is an original founding partner in Pacific Biodiesel. As contracted managers for the Central Maui Landfill, EKO runs green waste co-composting operations on Maui and several other sites across the country. It was under Maui EKO that Pacific Biodiesel first subcontracted to process used cooking oil into biodiesel, also attracting owner Tom Pawlish as an investor in this pioneering company.
