Palmyra Atoll Goes Renewable via Pacific Biodiesel, The Nature Conservancy

January 31, 2013 |

In Palmyra, Pacific Biodiesel will supply a second delivery of biodiesel in 2013 for a Nature Conservancy research team on Palmyra Atoll, located in the North Pacific, after first supplying a load of 10,000 gallons in 2011. The Nature Conservancy’s Palmyra Project strives to “conserve unique biological resources on the atoll; supporting scientific research which will enhance our understanding of coastal and marine environments and guide future management actions while maintaining an efficient research station on this remote atoll,” said Palmyra Program Director Laurie Moore. With environmental consciousness in more than just marine life and ecosystem, the Palmyra research station hopes to wean off fossil fuel in five years. “We began using biodiesel in our generators,” Moore stated. “Over the coming year, we will develop an overall strategy for reducing our energy demands and implementing renewable energy solutions, thus lowering our costs and our carbon footprint.”
