Revolution Green Biodiesel

Revolution Green is A True Story of Biodiesel in America. Filmmaker Stephen Strout’s inspiring documentary focuses on entrepreneurs Bob King and his wife Kelly who, without outside financial funding, developed a method of converting waste vegetable oil into biodiesel fuel. This is a revealing account of this renewable source of energy called biodiesel and its potential importance to the world economy. Based on a true story, it follows the lives of Bob and Kelly King, whose pioneering vision created America’s first sustainable biodiesel refinery back in 1996 on Maui Hawaii. This is their story. Bob and Kelly’s venture, named Pacific Biodiesel, became the first private company in America to divert and refine thousands of tons of municipal grease trap waste and waste vegetable oil into clean-burning, premium ASTM certified, B100 biodiesel fuel for diesel engines. Years later, country music legend Willie Nelson became very interested in the Kings’ vision of sustainable biodiesel, and eventually they formed a strong partnership. Over a short period of time, Willie and good friend Bill Mack would use satellite radio to talk to truckers and farmers about biodiesel, elevating this renewable fuel into mainstream recognition. This is an American story of one man’s vision to manufacture biodiesel and another man’s determination to spread the word, resulting truckers using it in their big rigs, and farmers turning soybeans into biodiesel. Their unique perspectives on living a sustainable way of life offer audiences a chance to become empowered to make a difference. Using a diesel vehicle offers a choice. Do I want to use a renewable, domestic and cleaner burning, non-toxic fuel that is actually better for my engine? This movie shows how some people have found one possible way to help solve our energy and environmental problems in this country. This sheds much-needed light on one direction this country could and should be heading. It’s a simple idea in a simple movie with good people talking about wanting to do a good thing that is Win-Win-Win for everybody involved and the earth. I don’t think this is the total solution to our energy crisis. However, it poses a good alternative, which together with many other alternatives could help us moving forward. If groups of people across the country embrace this idea, it could become a viable industry. Not a stunning movie, but it hits at just the right level to appeal to viewers across a wide spectrum on an important subject. Also… Willie Nelson. Watch it! Documentary 2007 NR 1hr 10m.
