UCO recycling to increase following new partnership in California

Downey Ridge Environmental Company, developer of Greasezilla® fats, oils and grease (FOG) and used cooking oil (UCO) separation and processing systems, is partnering with LEND Environmental to accelerate recycling of UCO and grease trap waste across southern California.
The companies will set up additional locations to separate the waste input streams into water, batter, and oils to recover valuable organics for reuse as clean energy.
Furthermore, the facilities will contribute to California’s environmental goals by keeping waste out of the public water infrastructure, mitigating landfills, producing renewable energy and repurposing wastewater.
Projected to go online shortly, the system will double LEND Environmental’s grease recycling capabilities and expand Greasezilla’s presence in the region.
The companies plan to announce additional systems in California in the coming months along with many new sites nationwide.
“Los Angeles County generates an enormous amount of waste oil and greases,” said Louis Downey, owner of LEND Environmental.
“With Greasezilla we can separate and recover trapped low-carbon biofuels from waste oils while utilizing a small percentage of the very fuel it generates to power the process – a pure example of the circular economy at work. We see tremendous growth potential and are excited to work with Greasezilla to expand our recycling operations in the area.”
Widely recognised for its ecological FOG separation process, Greasezilla separates water and batter from commercial grease trap waste to generate a high-quality, low-moisture Brown Grease Advanced Biofuel.
“Most of our public and commercial customers install Greasezilla to solve their FOG discharge and separation needs, meeting the pressing demand for more FOG receiving centers nationwide,” said Brian Levine, EVP of Downey Ridge Environmental Company.
