B100 biodiesel derived from brown and black grease from wastewater treatment facilities.
By Control Engineering Staff July 2, 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.
