• Benefits of Reclaiming Brown Grease as an Advanced Biofuel

    The EPA reports that replacing fossil fuels with biofuels has the potential to reduce the negative effects of fossil fuel production and use, including conventional and greenhouse gases (GHG) pollutant emissions, exhaustible resource depletion and dependence on unstable suppliers.  A new means for biofuel focuses on reclaiming Brown Grease, an advanced biofuel, from grease trap waste, otherwise known as FOG (fats, oils & grease). The process concurrently addresses the growing fiscal and environmental problem with FOG processing shortages while generating an ecologically friendly advanced biofuel and reducing dependence upon fossil fuels. Advanced Biofuel from Food Processing Waste Unlike biofuels sourced from corn +

  • Battling FOG Waste with Technology – Greasezilla Invades WEFTEC

    The EPA reports the annual production of collected grease trap waste and uncollected grease entering sewage treatment plants ranges from 800 to 17,000 pounds/year per restaurant. Accumulation of brown grease is a primary cause of municipal Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO’s) that lead to property damage, health hazards and contaminants entering local water ways. There is a clean solution to this messy problem. Many raw materials containing lipids have been described as showing high potential for use in the production of biodiesel. These include low-grade animal fats and WCOs, but also other lipid wastes such as trap greases. All these waste lipids +
