RE: oil/grease for non-automotive applications


We at Albertson's Food Stores are investigating the use of waste soy oil
from our chicken fryers in space heaters for heating the receiving bays.

Call me for more information.

Subject: oil/grease for non-automotive applications


Does anyone on the list have experience with a company using recycled
cooking oil (commonly referred to as "yellow grease") as a fuel for
applications other than automotive?

We have a rendering plant in central Ohio who wants to use this "yellow
grease" that they get off their wastewater treatment plant to fuel their 99
million btu/hr boiler system.  They are currently using #2 and #4 oil to
fuel the boiler.  

At this point we are mainly interested in finding out who has had experience
with a similar application.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
