Springboard Biodiesel Announces Alliance With Daryl Hannah

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Springboard Biodiesel, a privately-owned, cleantech manufacturing company located in Chico, CA, announced today that actress and biodiesel advocate Daryl Hannah will begin selling the Company's award winning BioPro™ biodiesel processors from her website Ms. Hannah recently visited the Company's exhibition booth at the World AG Expo in Tulare, CA where she answered questions and demonstrated Biodiesel production in a Springboard Biodiesel BioPro™ processor.

"The BioPro™ is the easiest, small scale biodiesel processor I've seen; even I can do it!" said Ms. Hannah. The film star and founder of the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance told reporters she'd been tracking Springboard Biodiesel's progress for several years and was happy to be working with them. "Biodiesel, if made, harvested and distributed sustainably, is a fantastic and important part of the solution to our addiction to dirty, petroleum based fuels, and as a bonus you can forget about outrageous fuel prices!" She added, "Any farmer or institution that feeds a lot of people can convert excess crop oil or waste cooking grease into biodiesel with one of Springboard's machines, for less than $1.00 per gallon...and Biodiesel burns 80% cleaner than petroleum diesel."

"We are delighted to be working with Daryl," said Springboard Biodiesel's CEO, Mark Roberts. "She has been an early, leading advocate for small-scale, local biodiesel production, and her on-going commitment to sustainable initiatives, makes this a perfect match for our Company."

Daryl Hannah is a celebrated actress who has starred in numerous films, including "Blade Runner," "Splash," "Wall Street" and the "Kill Bill" films. She is also a tireless advocate for sustainable initiatives, including small-scale Biodiesel production. She runs the highly successful solution oriented website, and is a frequent commentator on biodiesel issues in the media.

Springboard Biodiesel is privately held and located in Chico, CA. The Company makes, markets and sells the BioPro™ and SpringPro™ lines of small-scale biodiesel processing equipment and has invested substantially in developing a portfolio of small-scale, feedstock-independent, production systems. Springboard's systems process the widest spectrum of feedstocks (from virgin oils to high FFA waste oils), and thereby allow the Company's customers to produce ASTM-grade biodiesel using the most readily available and least expensive local feedstocks. For more information, call 530.894.1793 or visit
