Who We Are

We are an environmentally responsible company that produces renewable diesel in Las Vegas.  We convert used motor oil into a high quality, high-cetane, ultra-low carbon renewable diesel fuel that meets the ASTM D975 (petroleum based diesel #2) standard through our patented technology. Other petrochemical wastes, seed oils, and animal fats may be added into the mix as well.  Our founder and inventor, Timothy D. Wetzel, has innovated in the renewable fuel space for 30+ years.


Our Mission

VRD is committed to clean and renewable energy now and in the future.
