Sandals Resorts producing and using biodiesel from its own UCO in St. Lucia

February 17, 2020 |

In St. Lucia, following the success of its first Biodiesel Conversion Centre in Saint Lucia, Sandals Resorts International is exploring ways to expand the project throughout its resorts across the region.

For the last five years, the company’s Dive Centre at Pointe Seraphine has been the site of its first biodiesel plant, successfully converting used vegetable oil from the kitchens at the company’s three resorts on the island into biodiesel fuel for use in marine vessels.

The plant produces approximately 320 gallons of biodiesel per month and this is used to fuel the company’s four 16 ton dive boats as well as his own company-issued van.
