BioFuelBox Introduces Biodiesel Refinery System

September 28, 2009

SAN JOSE, CA --- BioFuelBox Inc. has introduced a fully scaled refinery for converting waste fat, oil and grease from wastewater into a clean-burning renewable fuel.

The company's first plant, located in Idaho, is processing waste fat, oil and grease to produce a low-sulfur, ASTM-compliant biodiesel for on-road use, the company said. 

"The U.S. discards more than 4 billion gallons of grease through wastewater treatment systems every year that could be transformed into fuel," said Steven Perricone, BioFuelBox's CEO. "Our patented NovoStream process provides the most environmentally friendly solution for remediating watery waste greases like trap grease, wastewater scum, industrial food processing DAF, and other wastewater FOG [fat, oil and grease] sources." 

BioFuelBox's biodiesel is clean-burning, delivering an 85 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to petroleum-based diesel, the company said. 

BioFuelBox was recently awarded top honors by AlwaysOn in the resource recovery and waste management category. Every year, AlwaysOn selects the most promising clean-tech companies in several categories. BioFuelBox was recognized for its turnkey system, which generates energy from waste by processing and extracting value from wastewater streams.
