Two companies have formed a partnership for recycling restaurant grease.
Philadelphia-based BlackGold Biofuels and Green Lane, Pa.-based SLM Facility Solutions Nationwide have partnered to offer kitchen grease recycling options for the hospitality industry, the companies said in a news release. Restaurants, food processors and other buildings with food service can send liquid waste from their kitchen drains and grease traps to be recycled into biofuels.
BlackGold Biofuels operates liquid waste recycling facilities that extract and recycle residual fats, oils, and greases from kitchen wastewater into biodiesel. SLM serves the hospitality industry, providing the management and consolidation of grease trap and jetting services for commercial kitchens, including waste stream management and diversion.
"This partnership streamlines the recycling process for restaurants by increasing access to BlackGold's innovative wastewater service," said Emily Landsburg, BlackGold CEO. "In partnership with SLM, we have identified both the most cost effective and best use for wastewater materials, eliminating confusion and headaches for kitchens and waste-haulers."
