Why Work Here?

We're SeQuential. We collect used cooking oil, refine it into biodiesel and bioproducts, and then refuel our communities. You might have seen our trucks on the highway, or spotted our used collection bins behind your favorite restaurant. Or maybe you have even filled your vehicle with our biodiesel. So is Sequential a cooking oil recycler? A trucking company? A biodiesel refinery? We’re all those things. We collect used cooking oil, refine it into biodiesel and bioproducts, and then refuel our communities. We take part in each step of the process. That’s why we are called SeQuential. We ensure each step is top-notch and always driving toward our main goal: to build a better energy model that puts people, community, and the environment first. It’s a simple idea, really, but one that’s better for us all. And, thankfully, there’s a place for everyone within our process. We hope you’ll join us.
