The market for brown grease as a feedstock for the production of biodiesel and other alternative fuels is growing and pumpers should take advantage of this opportunity to create a new revenue stream and reduce disposal costs.

William Smith is a consulting engineer providing practical, cost-effective assistance to the liquid waste, biofuels and waste motor oil industries. At the 2016 WWETT Show, Smith will share his knowledge with attendees in his session entitled “Brown Grease Recovery From Grease Trap Waste: Science and Economics.” Join Smith and your fellow pumpers at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 19 in rooms 130-132 to learn more.

What will you cover in the session and why is it important?
Smith:
We will explore opportunities to increase revenue and decrease disposal costs by recovering brown grease from grease trap waste.  Most folks who perform trap and interceptor service are seeing increased tipping fees, fewer disposal options and increased enforcement pressure. At the same time, there are some exciting opportunities to address these disposal problems by turning grease trap waste into a variety of renewable energy products.    

What do you hope attendees will learn in this session?
Smith:
The basics of brown grease recovery, the properties of brown grease, the markets for brown grease, and some economic background on setting up a recovery operation.  

Why should a beginning pumper attend this class?
Smith:
If you are looking to differentiate your business in a crowded marketplace, the cost reduction and "green marketing" afforded by processing grease trap waste can be a real selling point for a new pumper entering the market or growing their business.  

Why should a veteran pumper attend this class?
Smith:
Recovery of brown grease can decrease disposal costs, provide additional revenue, provide better equipment uptime and save labor, all of which are key to making a business more competitive.  

What else should attendees know about this session?
Smith:
Grease trap and interceptor maintenance enforcement is on the rise nationwide as municipalities grapple with growing populations. Grease processing and disposal is an often overlooked and misunderstood part of the liquid waste industry. This session will have something for everyone, whether you are a pumper, liquid waste processor or utility representative.
