“Our hope is to increase availability of quality alternative fuels”
Manitowoc WI – Located at Bio Blend Fuels in Manitowoc, WI, American Fuel Blending Systems offers its first Bio-Diesel Blending Station. This unit is a portable, above ground and self contained dispensing system that live blends Bio-Diesel and regular Diesel into B20, B50, and B99 products. The blend can also be programmed to suit individual needs as well. Units are also available for ethanol blending. Packed with features, this blending station is suitable for almost any location. Retailers will appreciate the dispensing pump that includes a credit card reader with an interface to accept both Mastercard and Visa. This feature allows 24/7 un-staffed operation. Fleet operators will benefit by consistently using the correct blend for each piece of equipment. The eye catching design includes the safety of fireguard above ground tanks available in 5,000 or 10,000 gallons. Each tank is heated to offer the protection from gelling and the benefit of blending at temperature.
This portable self contained fuel station arrives pre assembled. Simply select a location, run power to it and your ready to dispense fuel. No holes to dig, plumbing to run or assembly. It’s the hassle free way to introduce alternative fuels at your station, or use them for your fleet. The installation of alternative fuel stations offers several benefits. The federal government is offering a tax credits towards the installation alternative fueling stations. There are many states that also offer a credit or inventive for the installation of alternative fueling stations. Additionally, each station installed decreases our dependence on foreign oil and utilizes a cleaner, greener fuel. American Fuel Blending Systems goal is to increase the distribution of alternative fuels. This blending system provides retailers with simple convenient means of providing alternative fuels to their customers.
The bio diesel is supplied by Bio Blend fuels Inc. The Bio Blend Fuels plant opened in May of this year. Currently the plant can produce up to 2.6 million gallons of ASTM quality fuel. Future plans call for operation of three shifts and increasing the production capacity of the proprietary manufacturing method for a capacity total of up to 5.2 million gallons a year. Fuel is primarily produced from waste streams such as bacon grease, choice white grease or tallow. The plant is as self sufficient as possible including the ability to pick up raw materials and delivery finished products in any blend or unblended. Fuel can be delivered in up to quantities of 6000 gallons per load. Bio Blend fuels is a member of the National Bio Diesel Board and is registered as a fuel producer and blender with the IRS. R&D at Bio Blend Fuels is working on a system that will grow and harvest algae for bio diesel production in their in house field testing laboratory.
Anywhere that there would be a need for fuel, this self contained “mini station” could be used. For example, it would be ideal for a marine or RV location. Because those industries tend to be seasonal, the smaller capacity is ideal for providing fuel without the worry of leftover fuel at the end of the season. Farmers could benefit in a similar fashion. During planting and harvest, more fuel is consumed than in winter months, farmers could adjust their blends to the changing seasonal temperatures. Construction companies would have the advantage of moving the station from construction site to construction site. Public transportation, schools, government, and park systems could all benefit from the ease of use and adaptability.
