Los Angeles, CA [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Fat may no longer be a negative thing, at least when it comes to producing biodiesel. FatBox, a device developed by Pacific Natural Energy (PNE) may make fat a valuable resource. It has the ability to transform fat into fuel.
The process uses raw animal fats, or feedstocks, that are loaded into the FatBox, which then liquefies them to be used in biodiesel production. It takes approximately 15 pounds of animal fats to yield one gallon of usable feedstock.
