Brown Grease Collection Unit Helps Provide Low-Cost Feedstock
by Ron Kotrba (Biodiesel Magazine) Bio-Energy Holdings Inc. has developed a brown grease collection process unit available for restaurants, trademarked the A-Ceptor, to help avoid clogged grease traps, fines and sewer problems. The unit, which the company says is modular, free-standing, externally self-contained and serviceable, collects and processes brown grease before it has a chance to become a restaurant trap problem. The A-Ceptor can also collect and process used cooking oils without any modification.
The unit, invented by Bio-Energy Holdings CEO Pete Chapin, is designed to sit outside of a restaurant and be serviceable 24/7, and it is housed in a military-grade container to thwart would-be grease thieves. The A-Ceptor has four compartments that separate the solids and water out of the grease, leaving a final product that is 98 percent pure brown grease. READ MORE
