BlackGold Biofuels sets up oil recycling facility in Charlotte to facilitate collection

April 23, 2013 |

In North Carolina, BlackGold Biofuels of Charlotte has opened an innovative recycling facility for restaurant kitchens’ wastewater, cleaning up the water and recovering a biofuel. While it’s common to recycle deep fryer oil, recycling oils from kitchen wastewater has proven much more elusive. The facility is the first of its kind in the area. BlackGold Biofuels of Charlotte receives grease trap waste from wastewater haulers that is generated in commercial and institutional kitchens during dishwashing and food preparation. BlackGold Biofuels removes food particles and then extracts and purifies the recovered plant- and animal-based oils. The recovered oil is used for biofuels.
