Biodiesel producer changes name


ERIE, Pa. — Lake Erie Biofuels, LLC has changed its name to HERO BX.

HERO BX produces high-quality, low-cost biodiesel. Currently producing 45 million gallons of biodiesel per year, the company plans to expand as it continues to grow its global presence in the biodiesel industry.

According to company CEO Leonard Kosar, the company’s advantage is its ability to produce biodiesel using multiple feedstocks primarily from vegetable oils and waste oils.

“What most second and third generation biofuels are not doing today is actually producing biodiesel,” said Kosar.

“HERO BX is producing superior biodiesel today using first generation feedstocks from waste oil to catfish oil, to vegetable oil, and tomorrow we will add to our feedstock portfolio the most efficient and cost competitive second and third generation feedstocks such as camelina and algae.”
