Revolution Green

"Revolution Green: A True Story of Biodiesel in America" is about one man's vision to manufacture biodiesel and one man's quest to use it in his big rig. The documentary is about the American dream and how renewable energy is critical to the future of the world economy. Centered on a husband and wife from Maui, Hawaii, the film documents how in 1996, with no financial backing, they pioneered a waste-to-energy process that took thousands of tons of waste vegetable oil destined for the Maui landfill and refined it into ASTM certified, B100 biodiesel. The film is narrated by Woody Harrelson, featuring Willie Nelson.
