Bio-Energy Holdings Inc. has developed a brown grease collection process unit available for restaurants, trademarked the A-Ceptor, to help avoid clogged grease traps, fines and sewer problems. The unit, which the company says is modular, free-standing, externally self-contained and serviceable, collects and processes brown grease before it has a chance to become a restaurant trap problem. The A-Ceptor can also collect and process used cooking oils without any modification.The unit, invented by Bio-Energy Holdings CEO Pete Chapin, is designed to sit outside of a restaurant and be serviceable 24/7, and it is housed in a military-grade container to thwart would-be grease thieves. The A-Ceptor has four compartments that separate the solids and water out of the grease, leaving a final product that is 98 percent pure brown grease.Bio-Energy Holdings is looking to partner with biodiesel producers for the supply of low-cost brown grease feedstock. The company has developed its own biodiesel conversion process but Chapin said rather than competing with the biodiesel industry, the company would like to contribute to it instead. Chapin...

Despite recent challenges of financing and debate about overall greenhouse gas (GHG) benefits, global biofuels demand is still projected to grow by an impressive 133% by 2020. Biofuels supply is estimated to be short by more than 32 billion liters (8.5 billion gallons) over the same period. And Biodiesel global supply may be short 13 billion liters (3.4 billion gallons) for biodiesel by 2020. The demand for biofuels is expected to grow through 2020 driven by increased biofuels blending. The market will begin to realize a biofuels supply deficit around 2015. In order to meet this shortfall, we know a company that has a super innovative technology. This technology enables this company to manufacture bio-diesel green fuel using a re-cycled nuisance waste.. Because it is a low cost nuisance waste, it provides this company with a significant manufacturing cost advantage, and the company can produce B100 with a larger profit margin than petroleum diesel or agricultural crop bio-diesel. Additionally, it removes no feedstock from the food supply.
