> I recently had a question asked of me about the conversion of
> restaurant trap grease into biodiesel.  There is a local rendering plant
> near me which I called for information.  They referred me to their
> corporate headquarters which I then called.  I have not received a
> return call from them.
> Does anyone know if there are rendering plants that are selling trap

> for biodiesel to a point at which it would make economic sense for
> rendering plants to divert a portion of their feedstock into this market
> or produce the fuel themselves.
> Thanks in advance for any information.
