Bay Minette company’s renewable diesel wows expert

BAY MINETTE — Cello Energy sprouted quietly here as a truly homegrown industry. But it won’t stay that way, said David Bransby, professor of energy crops and bio-energy at Auburn University.

The company has been in startup for about two months, making renewable diesel fuel from tires, hay, straw, wood chips and switchgrass. Full production should begin in March, with a goal of 20 million gallons a year, produced for well under a $1 gallon, company officials said.

Created, built and financed by the father-and-son team of Jack and Allen Boykin of Daphne, the company will “shock the world,” Bransby said.

Experts are calling this “mind-boggling.”  Looks like a recycler’s dream.

  1. Great news! If it is viable in practice, I’d sure like to put a big diesel backup generator at the house.
