In a story about the sale of Bently Biofuels to Oregon-based SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel, representatives from SeQuential amended statements they’d originally made about their plans for the Minden production plant: Their statement reads: “SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel plans to maintain the biodiesel sales and cooking oil collection services previously provided by Bently Biofuels in Nevada. Our first priority will be to focus on ensuring a smooth transition for existing customers. We look forward to partnering with them to recycle their used cooking oil into biodiesel. We are still determining a long-term plan for the production facility in Minden. In the near-term, biodiesel production will be moved to the SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel plant in Salem, OR.”
