UH, Pacific Biodiesel to Partner for Restaurant Grease Trap Research

MANOA—The University of Hawaii at Mānoa and Pacific Biodiesel Inc. have signed an agreement to collaborate in finding pathways for treatment of waste-trap grease from restaurants. If successful, the project could turn restaurant waste-trap grease from a problematic waste into a new source of useful products, such as liquid and gaseous fuels and soil amendments.

The research agreement is an outgrowth of a Water, Energy and Soil Sustainability (WESS) research effort at UH Mānoa funded by the UH Sustainability Initiative and U.S. Department of Energy. WESS is led by the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, and includes faculty from the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, and Shidler College of Business.
