Abstract
Description
The purpose of this report is to document the potential for using waste grease as a feedstock, to locate the grease, and to document how much grease is available in South Carolina. This report looked at two major forms of waste grease: yellow grease and brown grease. The South Carolina Energy Office conducted two surveys of the waste grease collectors operating within the state. According to the survey results, 218,100 gallons of brown grease are collected annually in the state. The low level of regulation indicated could have significant consequences with the emergence of biodiesel and the resulting demand for waste grease.
