Well, how's that for truth in advertising? The headline above is exactly what SRS Biodiesel wrote on a press release yesterday. Apparently, with all of the economic disaster headlines going around, biodiesel isn't getting the attention it deserves, and SRS wants to change that. Their tactic is to hold an open house at their California corporate office/manufacturing facility - and to send out the press release and ask the media directly to help publicize biodiesel's benefits. We certainly cover biodiesel here, both the benefits and problems, but we're a sucker for a help request. So, if SRS wants to
"educate the public on this amazing fuel and give it the exposure it's due," we'll listen.

PRESS RELEASE:

The Biodiesel Industry Is Struggling And We Need Your Help!

Murrieta, CA. March 5, 2009: Alternative fuels like biodiesel are not talked about much in the media which is a shame considering all of the valuable benefits they can provide to the state of California and the environment. Unfortunately biodiesel does not get the media attention it truly deserves.

Biodiesel has been a viable alternative to gasoline because it has better fuel efficiency and burns cleaner, thus making it good for the environment. It has a greater lubricity than gasoline which means engines will last longer. Also, the unit value or energy per unit of biodiesel is greater than that of gasoline which means you go further on a gallon of biodiesel. This is good news for the consumer who will save more and do their part to reduce their carbon footprint.

Biodiesel has definitely proven to be a valuable alternative to gasoline, yet why does it not receive the attention it's so deserving of. Much of this is due to the state of the economy, petroleum gasoline prices dropping, and more attention being put on other alternative energies in California. Our goal at SRS is to educate the public on this amazing fuel and give it the exposure it's due.

We are looking for your support in getting the struggling biodiesel industry to regain momentum and excitement in a depressed market. We know no one can build awareness and create exposure for an industry as good as the media. We respect your position and are asking for your help.

On Friday, March 20th from 10am-4pm, we invite you to an Open House at our new corporate office/manufacturing facilities in Murrieta, California. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be on hand to give you tours of our facility, answer questions about our company and the industry, tell you more about biodiesel plant partnerships and show you what's happening in your own backyard here in California.
