"I'm willing to take it now," said Michael Bell of Bell Event Services in El Segundo. He'll even pick it up.
"I really think this is the way to go. It's using a waste product for another source (of power)."
Bell reasoned that local restaurants need to dump their old french fry grease anyway, so why not let him take it for free?
"It's a waste product, basically, so I thought that it would be a good idea to enlist local restaurants that are already there during the event anyway," Bell said.
Bell - who produces events for Redondo Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, El Segundo and other South Bay cities - started thinking about running generators with biodiesel after city officials asked how festivals could be more environmentally friendly.
"One of the issues is the emissions of the diesel generators we use," he said. "They asked if we could go solar. That's not practical, so I started looking into alternative fuels."
Supplying electricity to Fiesta Hermosa vendors and carnival booths usually sucks up about 150 gallons of diesel fuel over each of the twice-annual event's three-day runs, Bell said. Generators running on biodiesel emit up to 80 percent less than their diesel counterparts, he said.
With current diesel prices hovering around $2.25 a gallon nationwide, Bell will probably break even by running his generators on biodiesel.
But he's more concerned with the loftier benefits of the switch, anyway.
"(There's) the whole political aspect of being dependent on foreign oil, and absolutely the emissions are becoming more and more of an issue," Bell said. "I don't want to be putting on these festivals and putting out the wrong messages."
Inside his Hawthorne warehouse, Bell has rigged up a system that converts old cooking oil into fuel that can be used in standard generators - a setup he tested last week at the Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K Run.
"You can't see any smoke," he said.
Bell said event production companies using biodiesel are a rarity on the West Coast, but if all goes well at Hermosa's arts-and-crafts festival come Memorial Day weekend, he'll try a similar arrangement a week later at the Palos Verdes Street Fair.
