Extreme Biodiesel becomes more than just a pure-play biodiesel producer
By Bryan Sims | March 09, 2011

BookMerge Technology Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary Extreme Biodiesel, finalized all necessary operations, permitting, and outfitting of trucks, and retained personnel to own and operate a fully functional brown grease recycling and rendering plant on the site of its 6 MMgy biodiesel production facility in Corona, Calif.

According to BookMerge Technology CEO Rick Carter, the move to conduct waste grease collection at local restaurants and perform grease trap cleaning will allow Extreme Biodiesel to create additional revenue and expand its waste vegetable oil collection business. “With the economic environment getting better, the government reinstituting tax incentives and the demand for biodiesel going up, we’re quite happy where things are going for us,” Carter tells Biodiesel Magazine. 

In addition to producing biodiesel and waste oil collection, recycling and rendering operations, Extreme Biodiesel continues to produce and sell its line of “mini extractor” reactors, which it initiated in June 2004 in Santa Ana, Calif. These units, according to the company, are designed for small business owners and individuals who seek to produce biodiesel at their own locations. As sales of its mini extractors picked up in February 2008, the company moved to its 11,400-square-foot facility in Corona.
