Bently Biofuels acquires Bay Area grease collection company
In August, Nevada-based biodiesel producer Bently Biofuels Co. expanded its used cooking oil collection program by purchasing the assets of Got Grease?, a Bay Area waste oil and grease trap pumping company.
Got Grease? collected used cooking oil throughout the San Francisco peninsula, East Bay, and Marin areas up to Sacramento. The used cooking oil was then sold to biofuels producers. As one of Got Grease?'s largest customers, it was a natural fit for Bently Biofuels to expand its used cooking oil collection services by purchasing the business assets.
This expansion means the addition of approximately 12 jobs in the Bay Area.
Christopher Bently, the CEO of Bently Biofuels, said, “Bently Biofuels has always operated with the singular goal of increasing sustainability for transportation. Using today’s technology to turn waste vegetable oil into fuel bridges the gap between fossil fuels and emerging, sustainable energies of the future. By adding our own grease collection service we increase our efficiency in delivering our alternative to toxic-based fossil fuels. I am very proud to present a more complete and capable Bently Biofuels in the interest of preserving our environment.”
