Port biodiesel maker lauded by USDA

U.S. Department of Agriculture’s state Director for Rural Development Glenda Humiston (left) listens to comments by Lisa Mortenson, chief executive officer and co-founder of Community Fuels, a biodiesel manufacturer with a facility at the Port of Stockton. Humiston and other USDA officials were on hand to mark the USDA’s Energy Month and to laud Mortenson and her company for continuing to expand the production of high quality, renewable fuel. That expansion since it was founded in 2005 means more clean fuel and more jobs to the region. The visit came as Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack released a report highlighting the ways USDA programs contribute to the nation’s energy independence and helps rural small businesses and farmers become more energy efficient.
