Process to convert grease to biofuel successfully tested

B100 biodiesel derived from brown and black grease from wastewater treatment facilities.

07/02/2009


Bio Solutions Manufacturing Inc. announced that Hammerhead Engineering LLC has successfully completed its second test of a brown grease pre-treatment process. In a laboratory setting, the Hammerhead Engineering staff has now twice successfully pre-treated liquid brown grease into a reduced FFA (free fatty acid) feedstock. This feedstock is the raw material that will be used for further conversion into B100 biodiesel , by the biodiesel fuel production facility which Bio Solutions Manufacturing plans to build and operate.

Hammerhead Engineering LLC is on schedule to deliver a completed pre-treatment process and engineering design for a production facility capable of producing 6,000 gallons a day of B100, which meets ASTM standards. This process will offer the municipal waste water treatment market a viable solution to dispose of both brown and black grease by converting this organic waste into B100.
