Abstract
Description
The purpose of this report was to document the potential for using waste restaurant grease as a feedstock, to locate where the grease was located, and how much was available in South Carolina. Currently one facility, Southeast Biodiesel, plans to produce some of its biodiesel from waste grease and will go through an extensive cleaning process to ensure the feedstock is as pure as possible. Where documented it was found that 100 percent of the used waste grease was sold to the feed industry for between 12 – 15 cents per pound.
