[GreenYes] Re: Alternatives for recovery of cooking oil
Aloha John,

Here on Maui, we are fortunate to have a manufacturer of quality
biodiesel fuel from waste cooking oil (FOG).

See the details at http://www.mauigreenenergy.org/biodiesel.htm

Pacific Biodiesel (www.biodiesel.com) makes a fine fuel that we have
used in our car, a 2001 VW New Beetle diesel (since new) for over
18,000 problem free miles. BTW, we get 40 fossil free miles to the
gallon. Our friend Shaun has driven his 2000 VW Golf over 35,000 miles
on B100 as well. We fuel our two International multi compartment trucks
on B100, too.

See the details at http://www.mauirecycles.com/

We are a five person company who hauls recyclables on Maui and believes
in "walking the talk." 

There is also a great forum that Maui Green co-sponsors with Joshua
Tickell, the author of "From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank" that you may
want to check out:

Is there much waste oil on the mainland that actually gets landfilled?
My understanding is that most of the waste oil gets bought by animal
feed manufacturers.

And, thanks for asking about biodiesel :)

Does anyone know of a report that looks at some alternatives for the
recovery of cooking oil (such as the oil used to cook french fries at 
fast
food restaurants)?

I am looking for both the technological alternatives -- rendering, 
making
bio-diesel fuel, etc -- as well as a discussion of the environmental 
impacts
of the alternatives.

Thanks much,

John Reindl, Recycling Manager
Dane County, WI
