The arrival of biodiesel at the RTW Terminal in Brownsville

Houston []

Gulf Hydrocarbon, the premier provider of biodiesel to the petroleum industry, announces the arrival of biodiesel at the RTW Terminal in Brownsville, TX, located at 1005 Anchor Road.

Gulf Hydrocarbon’s new terminal will offer convenient access to biodiesel truck loading rack. This new gateway for US-made biodiesel will offer easy availability and can serve the local and Mexican distribution-based businesses. In addition to truck access, the terminals also marine transport and the Brownsville Rio Grande International Rail Road serves the terminal for an efficient means of rail transportation.

Jess Hewitt, President, Gulf Hydrocarbon is full of optimism about introducing biodiesel to the South Texas market, “With the addition of our South Texas terminal distribution point we can now make biodiesel available to new markets in the Texas valley region, a vast and productive agricultural area, and new markets for renewable fuel in the frontera border states in Mexico. South Texas school buses, farms and industry now have access to a powerful fuel that is green and fights air pollution. These organizations are eligible for state and federal grants that pay for the addition of biodiesel to fleet and school buses who can now use biodiesel to fight harmful diesel particulate emissions. We intend to spend a good deal of time and effort educating related industries about these government incentives and benefits to the environment.”

Jess will be speaking about biodiesel, the Renewable Fuel Standards Act 2 and the economic impact to the Brownsville area at the 2010 Energy Expo, January 21, 2010 at the UTB / TSC ITEC Center located at 301 Mexico Boulevard, Brownsville, Texas 78520

All biodiesel at the RTW terminal meets the latest ASTM D6751 standards. Biodiesel, a non-toxic and biodegradable energy source, is a clean-burning alternative to petroleum diesel made from renewable domestic resources such as plant oils, animal fats and recycled grease and kitchen oil. Agrifuels, such as biodiesel, perform essentially the same as petroleum-based diesel, with one major difference – biodiesel significantly reduces harmful hydrocarbon emissions and greenhouse gases, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by as much a 78% as compared to petroleum diesel.
