Partnership Facilitates Grease Recycling for Biodiesel Production
(BlackGold Biofuels/Biodiesel Magazine) Through a partnership between BlackGold Biofuels and SLM Facility Solutions Nationwide, restaurants around the U.S. will soon be able to more easily recycle greasy kitchen waste while saving money.
BlackGold and SLM have formed a strategic partnership to provide more cost-effective recycling options for hospitality industry wastes. The relationship will enable restaurants, food processors and other buildings with food service to send liquid waste from their kitchen drains and grease traps to be recycled into biofuels, with no additional cost or operational complexity.
BlackGold Biofuels operates liquid waste recycling facilities that use a patented process to extract and recycle residual fats, oils and greases from kitchen wastewater into biodiesel. SLM is positioned nationwide within the hospitality industry, providing the management and consolidation of grease trap and jetting services for commercial kitchens, including the management and diversion of waste streams. Through the partnership, SLM’s clients are able to recycle their grease trap waste, advancing client sustainability initiatives and community stewardship programs without increasing costs.
“This partnership streamlines the recycling process for restaurants by increasing access to BlackGold’s innovative wastewater service,” said Emily Landsburg, CEO of BlackGold Biofuels. “In partnership with SLM, we have identified both the most cost-effective and best use for wastewater materials, eliminating confusion and headaches for kitchens and waste-haulers.”
…BlackGold’s receiving facilities process the material into an intermediate product, which is then converted into biodiesel at centralized facilities, allowing waste to be aggregated from a broad geographic area while minimizing environmental and financial freight costs. READ MORE
