The article reports on the launch of the first online auction for biodiesel and related products by Fillmore Fuels. Such move is in line with the company's attempt to create an auction site like eBay for the growing renewable fuel market. According to Wesley Fillmore, president of the new auction, the service will provide a means for local farmers, restaurants and producers to sell their virgin vegetable oils or waste vegetable oils to the highest bidder, giving them the chance to increase their profit margins and limiting the middleman and cost.
