Springboard Biodiesel discounts BioPro prices at foodservice show
Springboard Biodiesel, a leading supplier of small-scale biodiesel processing appliances, announced it will further incent restaurateurs at the Western Foodservice and Hospitality Show to ‘do the right thing’ by selling its award-winning appliances to show attendees at a $1,000 discount.
Springboard’s BioPro line of biodiesel processors enable anyone with access to free used cooking oil (e.g., restaurant owners) to convert their used cooking oil into premium-grade biodiesel fuel for 95 cents per gallon.
“The BioPro is as easy to operate as a washing machine,” said Springboard CEO Mark Roberts. “All an operator needs to do is load it up and turn it on. The BioPro does the rest.”
Biodiesel fuel is a globally traded commodity that currently sells for close to $5 a gallon in California. By eliminating overhead costs and making biodiesel in an automated appliance, an operator has the opportunity to make this same fuel for one-fifth the cost. Biodiesel will run in any diesel engine, neat or mixed with diesel at any ratio. No conversion is required to the diesel engines that burn it.
More progressive restaurateurs will also be happy to discover that biodiesel made from used cooking oil emits 90 percent less CO2 and approximately 50 percent less particulate matter.
Roberts added, “The ROI on this equipment is incredibly fast, and we’ve made every part of this process, from financing to fueling, as easy as possible.”
Springboard currently has BioPro units in operation in 14 countries and in all 50 states.
The Western Foodservice and Hospitality show runs Aug. 18-20 at the LA Convention Center and will showcase some of the world’s most cutting edge restaurant equipment. Springboard’s equipment can be found at Booth No. 335.
