The production equipment that will be capable of recycling more than 10 million gallons of brown grease, creating over 200,000 gallons of liquid feedstock and over 750 tons of viable organic compounds, as well as reclaim over 9 million gallons of nutrient rich water.
ABF plans to expand to other markets in Florida to include Tampa, Daytona Beach and Jacksonville. In addition, ABF is looking at target locations in the southeast USA for expansion in 2013. All the bio feedstock (brown grease) recovered from the ABF operations is going back into the US energy markets to be used as biodiesel, renewable diesel or home heating oil. ABF is taking a waste stream and converting it to usable products that are needed in the economy.
