At DAR PRO Bioenergy, we take the used oil, fats and trap materials collected nationwide by DAR PRO Solutions and processed by DAR PRO Ingredients, and repurpose them – creating high-value biofuels to help meet the rising global demand for sustainable alternatives to petroleum diesel. We mean it when we tell our customers that the used oils or animal co-products we collect from them today can be valuable resources tomorrow.
Almost 100% of the used cooking oil and approximately 50% of the animal fat and bone we collect is processed into biodiesel or renewable diesel at one of our three biofuel production facilities. The material not used for biofuel is processed into fats, proteins, minerals and oils for use in a complex array of innovative and varied industrial and consumer applications that have helped make us a world leader in sustainable operations.
By entrusting your used cooking oil, animal fats and meat co-products to our trio of DAR PRO brands, you are contributing to maintaining a healthy environment in three important ways:
- We divert carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials away from the soil, surface waters, groundwater and the atmosphere through effective recycling
- We transform the carbon and nitrogen we capture into useful products, thus reducing the production of greenhouse gases that result when new products are produced and later discarded
- Our processing methods are the safer and more efficient alternative for handling these organic materials
