Welcome to the Cowichan Bio-Diesel Co-op!
Vancouver Island's first Bio-Diesel Blending Pump - Duncan, BC.
"We eat locally, and so do our cars" is the Cowichan Bio-Diesel Co-op's (CB-DC) motto. Currently, our 200 plus members have easy access to 100% Bio-Diesel (B100) made from recycled waste cooking oil, and is produced right here in the Cowichan Valley.
CB-DC’s waste oil is collected from local restaurants who use vegetable oil. They are part of our Eat Better Locations program. It’s a win-win situation, because when we EAT BETTER, our vehicles SMELL BETTER.
Better because biodiesel is easy on the planet and easy on the carbon cycle compared to regular fossil-diesel. Better because our B100 is all biodiesel, not blended with petro-diesel like commercial sources. Better because the life-cycle carbon emissions are lower and the exhaust fumes are 90% less toxic. Better because we don’t compete with food crops, we recycle waste streams into clean-burning sustainable fuel.
We are raising funds to continue to create better access to biofuels. Help us spread this Bio-Diesel Blending Pump and technology to all over Vancouver Island, BC and beyond. Support us by becoming a member or making a donation. Help Vancouver Island take a step towards energy resilience today!
