Oil Change by Matt Bevilacqua of Grid.com
Our Marketing Director Brenda McNeal was recently asked by Grid.com for a comment on their article on the conversion of waste oil to biofuel. Here’s a snippet of the article and the full link below!
The chefs at each of her restaurants—Memphis Taproom, Strangelove’s, Local 44, Clarkville and Coeur—gather their used cooking oil in 55-gallon drums, which they place outside a few times a week. Then trucks bearing the name Waste Oil Recyclers pick it up, after which it will, eventually, become fuel.
“Our cooking oil gets processed and then basically sold to a biodiesel refinery,” explains Brendan Steer, director of sales and co-owner at Waste Oil Recyclers.
The Modena, Pennsylvania-based company started in 2006 with “a credit card and a van,” Steer says. Today, its fleet of 12 trucks operates from Atlantic City to Harrisburg and from Baltimore to Scranton. (The company also seeks to expand to Southern Delaware and east to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.) Waste Oil Recyclers customers include restaurants, universities, hospitals and most of the stadiums in the South Philadelphia Sports Complex.
“Really, anyone who fries food,” says Brenda McNeil, director of marketing.
