Earth Biofuels, Inc. today announced a product and marketing agreement with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
With 13 Choctaw Travel Plaza locations along the heavily traveled I-75 and Highway 67 highway corridor in Oklahoma, the agreement will increase the availability of biodiesel in the state. This agreement represents the first Native American-owned business relationship for Earth Biofuels.
Willie Nelson’s BioWillie brand biodiesel will initially be offered in two locations being the Choctaw Travel Plaza #2 in Durant and the Choctaw Travel Plaza in Stringtown.
“The Choctaw Nation is pleased to be leading the way for alternative fuels in Oklahoma. Since we serve thousands of trucks each day at our Choctaw Travel Plazas, offering BioWillie? brand biodiesel not only gives us a competitive advantage, but allows us to provide more choices of fuel to American truck drivers,” said Chief Gregory E. Pyle, Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
Choctaw Travel Plaza #2 is located on Highway I-75/Highway 67 north of Denison, Texas and just south of Durant, Oklahoma. Choctaw Travel Plaza Stringtown is located approximately 30 miles north of Durant, on Highway 69. Each Choctaw Travel Plaza offers convenience stores, services for truck drivers, and provides multiple pumps for BioWillie? brand biodiesel customers.
Earth Biofuels’ BioWillie brand biodiesel pumps are currently located in seven states, including California, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. BioWillie is a blend of biodiesel and petroleum diesel. The biodiesel is made from vegetable seeds, such as soybeans.
