Grease Recycling

Grease Recycling

Yellow grease or Feed grade fat, is commonly produced by recycling “used” cooking oil from restaurants or food processing facilities. When properly recycled, the grease can be used as a high-energy liquid feed additive in livestock and pet foods.

It is also increasingly being used as a source for renewable energy, either as raw stock for bio-fuels, or directly as a fuel.

Key Benefits of recycled Grease:

  • Used in numerous consumer goods
  • High-energy feed additive
  • Derived from used cooking oil
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Can be easily be converted and used as bio-fuel
  • Provides a low-cost lipid feedstock for sophorolipid production such as therapeutic cosmetics, germicides and environmental cleanups.
