Ian Hill is the founder and CEO of Oregon based Sequential Biofuels which consists of both a biofuel production company, producing a yearly five and a half million gallons of fuel, including ethanol, in the plant in Salem, OR and a filling station in Eugene, Oregon. At the time that Hill came from Tennessee to Oregon there was no demand for biofuel. After lots of study and believing that of the advantages of the lower carbon emissions of biofuels, and using recycled oil for the fuel would be a factor in making the world a better place SeQuential Biofuel was founded in 2002. Ninety percent of the fuel is made from recycled cooking oil which is very important to make this fuel sustainable without the many down sides of using land for growing fuel instead of food. Hill believes that we humans have ruined our own nest and feels strongly about not further perpetuating that model. The Eugene filling station is the first and only of its kind in that it is a passive solar building that uses 35% less energy than most convenience stores, has solar panels, produces 45% of its energy needs on site, has organic snacks, a “living” roof and the founders promised themselves they would never try to grow bigger than the food stock that was regionally sourced. For them, it’s about building community based wealth which means relying on locally made fuel and focuses on building local economies. The farms in E. Oregon that do grow some corn for use as fuel use human waste from Portland as fertilizer. Hill also makes the point that still the biggest impact we can have is to use less fuel in general.
