Salem-based SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel produced 20 million gallons of fuel in the past eight years of business.

The milestone comes a few months after the company made a large push into the Seattle market, signing on partners including the University of Washington, Pike Place Market and Safeco Field. SeQuential collects and processes used cooking oil from restaurants and food facilities.
