Greenleaf Biofuels, an alternative energy company, is currently building a facility in the New Haven Harbor to process New England’s excess cooking oil into usable transportation fuel and home heating oil. Gus Kellogg, the company’s CEO and founder, said in a press release that the facility will produce 10 million gallons of biodiesel per year, making the plant the largest of its kind in New England.
