We are in the process of setting up a biodiesel cooperative. If you are interested in joining the biodiesel cooperative please email us at

Island Futures created the Biodiesel report: biofuel_report

This report looked at the feasibility of creating biodiesel out of waste vegetable oil on Gabriola. In 2016 plans were initiated to put in place a biodiesel system on Gabriola. The majority of biodiesel is provided to Gertie, the community bus. Some is also available to residents of Gabriola island.

A by-product of making biodiesel is glycerin. We are turning this into Glean, a liquid soap.
