Biofuel Recycling Cooperative

Description: 

Provides vision and technical expertise to ecological energy and utility infrastructure projects with a focus on converting waste to energy. Our work has been a key element in developing and implementing San Francisco's innovative SFGreasecycle program, which helps fuel the City's diesel fleets with biodiesel made from used grease collected from local restaurants.

The Biofuel Recycling Cooperative is the architect of the SFGreasecycle program, a citywide effort by the City of San Francisco to create a waste vegetable oil (WVO) recovery program that diverts Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG) out of the trash, away from the sewer and eventually into City fleet. To make this happen, the San Francisco Public Utility Commission (SFPUC) has established a Commercial Waste Oil Transfer Station located at the Southeast Waste Water Treatment plant to handle all material from commercial establishments and residents in the City. This waste oil will be processed and sold to the biofuel industry, turning trash into fuel.
