Biofeedstock: The Wastier, the Better
As a proven leader in FOG separation and waste reduction, Greasezilla is making its mark on the renewable fuels industry.
By: Downey Ridge Environmental Company
Annually, the U.S. generates billions of gallons of FOG waste, sending more than 80 percent of it to landfills. By redirecting this massive waste stream, Greasezilla sites capture and recover an increasingly larger proportion of brown grease while significantly decreasing waste and harmful emissions.
Downey Ridge Environmental Company will have 30 installed sites by the end of 2023 and more than 50 locations through 2025, more than doubling the volume of brown grease recovered each year. The company is also focusing on industrial food processing facilities to maximize brown grease recovery at locations known to generate significant quantities of FOG waste.
"Renewable diesel and SAF refineries understand the economics of waste feedstocks,"
Greasezilla's innovative and ecological process for recovering brown grease has placed Downey Ridge Environmental Company in the center of a dynamic emerging market. As major F100 and G500 fuel companies convert refineries into biofuel facilities, biofeedstock demand is surging. Refineries are turning toward waste feedstocks for their lower cost and lower CI.
Less expensive than farm-sourced biofuels and oilseed, brown grease feedstock is sourced from the massive amount of grease trap waste produced annually. Greasezilla's FOG separation process ecologically separates the brown grease from the water and solids, resulting in a high-quality, low-moisture, low CI biofuel feedstock. Greasezilla's process not only bolsters the pool of available feedstocks for cleaner marine, aviation and transportation biofuels, but also helps to minimize greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the waste dumped in landfills.
Ron Crosier, President, Downey Ridge Environmental Company, said, "Greasezilla complements efforts to transition into a circular economy. Our growing number of regional hubs are driving sustainability practices for the water infrastructure, resource recovery and landfill mitigation sectors. Greasezilla regionally sources and repurposes an abundant wastestream into renewable resources to support the country's fuel and energy needs. That might make Greasezilla's brown grease the roundest fuel on the market."
