The Louisville Biodiesel Cooperative, Louisville/Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District and The Green Triangle in the 9th District formed partnership to recycle waste cooking oil for conversion to biodiesel.
The three organizations are calling on residents to donate their used cooking oil to the Louisville Biodiesel office. It has already collected a ton of waste cooking oil for the local production and distribution of high grade biodiesel fuel to benefit school children and small family farmers in Louisville and Kentucky.
"This is a great opportunity to reduce our city's waste treatment costs while providing cost-effective biodiesel...a low-cost, low polluting, high performance, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic alternative to petroleum diesel," Christian Thalacker of the Louisville Biodiesel Cooperative said. – J.F.S.
