Hornblower Cruises and Events Converts to Biodiesel at Port of San Diego

Hornblower Cruises and Events is the first commercial business operating in the Port of San Diego to voluntarily switch to a domestically produced, environmentally friendly biodiesel fuel.

They are collaborating with New Leaf Biofuels and General Petroleum, the largest distributor of biofuels in Southern California.


New Leaf Biofuel

New Leaf Biofuel is a San Diego biodiesel company focused on transforming the way companies fuel their vehicle fleets. New Leaf is focusing on providing biodiesel to the San Diego area and are recruiting restaurants to participate in their waste vegetable oil collection program. The waste cooking oil collected from local restaurants is used to manufacture biodiesel, which can fuel diesel vehicles with little or no conversion.

General Petroleum has evolved into a multifaceted corporation with service facilities in Southern California, Ventura/ Port Hueneme, the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle (Rainier Petroleum) and the Panama Canal Zone.

The PECOS Companies, including General Petroleum and Rainier Petroleum, supply nationally recognized petroleum products to a diverse customer base including domestic and deep draft marine, railroad, trucking, commercial/industrial, and automotive customers.

General Petroleum provides a full spectrum of commercial fuels.
