Oregon company buys Bently Biofuels

Staff Reports

An Oregon company has purchased Bently Biofuels, according to a statement issued by Bently Enterprises on Tuesday.

“After much deliberation, Bently Enterprises determined that, with the sale of Bently Biofuels, they would be able to fully focus on the production of quality products from Bently Ranch, specifically Bently Ranch Meats, and Bently Heritage Estate Distillery, as both businesses are more in alignment with the sustainable products that are consistent with Carson Valley’s agricultural heritage,” Bently Enterprises said in a statement issued Tuesday morning. “Bently Enterprises was thrilled to work with SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel, a dynamic company from Oregon, excited by Bently’s service area, especially in the California market. Bently Enterprises realized SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel would be the ideal company to continue the biofuels process that was founded and perfected by a great biofuels team in Minden.”

Bently Biofuels was founded by Don Bently to convert cooking grease and other materials into diesel fuel.

The company is one of the reasons Douglas County has regularly topped Nevada’s list of recycling communities.
