At DAR PRO Bioenergy, we help some of the leading meat producers, restaurants and supermarket chains in the country close the loop on meeting their sustainable goals by transforming their inedible fat and grease residuals into sustainable ingredients – including the fuel that can power the trucks making their next delivery. Working in close alliance with our own collection and processing professionals at DAR PRO Solutions and DAR PRO Ingredients, we have pioneered the use of recycled animal fats and used cooking oils in the production of renewable fuel. Only DAR PRO Bioenergy is able to collect our customers' fats and oils, and at one of our own three processing facilities, convert it into renewable fuel that they could be using to power the trucks bringing their next delivery.
North Americans eat 25 million pounds of French fries every day, with renderers picking up 2.5 billion pounds of used cooking oil annually. What happens to all that grease? The National Renderers Association can tell you all about it in their informative video at www.nationalrenderers.org.
Our industry plays a leading role in environmental stewardship. To learn more, read our whitepaper on sustainability: "Rendering: A Global Model of Sustainability", authored by our Vice President of Governmental Affairs and Technology, C. Ross Hamilton, Ph.D.
We have provided needed services to the restaurant industry for years, but our relationship has evolved even more since the development of using used cooking oil to produce biofuels, which our company pioneered. DAR PRO Solutions' new whitepaper, "Maximizing the Value of Your Used Cooking Oil" takes a look at how we work with our restaurant, supermarket and hospitality partners to build a more sustainable world.
