The Biodiesel Club has joined with the Eco Rotary Club of Morro Bay and the San Luis Obispo County Integrated Waste Management Authority to set-up a household waste vegetable oil (WVO) to biodiesel recycling program in San Luis Obispo County. Used cooking oil from deep fryers, frying pans and fondue pots will be recycled into sustainable biodiesel, a clean burning alternative fuel that can be used in any diesel vehicle.

County residents can bring their old and used cooking oil to any of the five IWMA Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Sites for recycling, including Cold Canyon Landfill Hwy. 227, SLO; Chicago Grade Landfill, HWY 41, Atascadero; the Morro Bay/Cayucos Waste Water Plant; the Nipomo CSD Yard, 509 Southland, and the Paso Robles Landfill, Hwy. 46 East.

For more information, call the Biodiesel Club at 805-235-0508 or log on to www.thebiodieselclub.org.

The American Biodiesel Buyers Club (The Biodiesel Club) is a national 501c3 non-profit organization based out of Morro Bay, California. The club’s mission is to reduce people’s exposure to the toxic chemicals found in petro-diesel fuel, fumes and exhaust by supporting the use of sustainable biodiesel as an alternative fuel.

Senior executives from 12 of the world’s largest chocolate and cocoa companies are signing a joint agreement with the Government of Ghana as part of an unprecedented strategy to accelerate actions to make cocoa farming in the country sustainable.

The plan, announced here today and known as CocoaAction, calls for building a rejuvenated and economically viable cocoa sector through increased cooperation between industry members and the Ghanaian government. Emphasis will be placed on providing cocoa farmers with a combination of productivity enhancements and community development interventions. These efforts are expected to enable no fewer than 100,000 Ghanaian farmers to achieve 100% increase in productivity as well as improving the communities where they live by 2020. The strategy will be coordinated by the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF).
