Florida National Guard Operates Biodiesel Program

June 28, 2011

STARKE, FL – The Florida National Guard is recycling used vegetable oil to produce biodiesel to fuel maintenance vehicles at Camp Blanding Joint Training Center, located in Clay County.

The used vegetable oil, collected at Camp Blanding’s dining facility in large drums, is transported to a maintenance facility where it is pumped into a processor and mixed with methanol and sodium hydroxide.

The biodiesel program at Camp Blanding began in January of last year.
