METRO Fuel Oil Corp. is an urban energy provider headquartered in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York. For over sixty years, METRO has been providing the cleanest fuel available to businesses, residences and commercial fleets within New York State. Today, METRO is the largest and most efficient distributor of biofuels in the New York Metropolitan Area. METRO’s business model allows existing customers to switch to biodiesel and to attract new customers with quality, pricing, and convenience. METRO is continuing its tradition of innovation by launching the largest biofuel processing plant in the United States along Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It is because of METROs rigorous adherence to quality production and high performance standards, that METRO is the preeminent provider of biofuel and has earned the BQ-9000 Certified Marketer designation from The National Biodiesel Accreditation Program. METRO is expanding its reach in alternative energy production, processing and distribution to communities throughout New York State through the rehabilitation of an abandoned fuel storage facility in Calverton, Long Island. METRO is also currently building the largest biofuels processing plant in North America with a 110 million gallon a year capacity. METRO’s biodiesel multi-feedstock processing facility will be able to accept virtually all kinds of feedstock – including soy, canola, animal fats, waste-grease and algae. This facility will also utilize state-of-the-art technology that is designed to re-use water and recycle waste to maximize plant efficiency and lower costs. The biofuels plant is slated to be completed in Summer 2010.
