Sandwich-based Cape Cod Biofuels significantly expanded its footprint with the acquisition of a portion of Mass Biofuel’s portfolio. Cape Cod Biofuels has acquired the Attleboro company’s grease collection route, along with trucks and equipment. The acquisition includes the addition of 130 restaurants to Cape Cod Biofuel’s existing client list of well over 600 restaurants in Southeastern Massachusetts.
Started in 2007 by business partners Marc Watson, James Chace and Andrew Davison, Cape Cod Biofuel’s recycles waste cooking oil into biofuel for home heating oil on Cape Cod. The company has seven employees and a state-of-the art plant in the Sandwich Industrial Park. Today they work with more than 700 restaurants across the Cape, South Shore and Rhode Island. They pick up the waste vegetable oil, refine it into biofuel at their production plant, and sell 100% of it to Loud Fuel, which blends it with heating oil and supplies it to local home owners.
Cape Cod Biofuels is the only ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) certified biofuel producer in the state, meaning their biofuel has passed all government fuel standards.
“It’s an exciting step in the growth of the company,” said Watson. “And it’s a win for everyone involved – a cleaner, greener environment and increased energy independence.”
All biodiesel is 100% biodegradable, burns cleaner and emits far fewer harmful toxins and pollutants into the air we breathe.
Cape Cod Biofuels is located at 14B Jan Sebastian Drive in Sandwich. For more information, call 508-833-8666 or visit www.capecodbiofuels.com.
