Poised for Record Growth, Greasezilla to Kick-off 2021 with New Installations
The FOG separation system has garnered attention in multiple industry sectors for its ability to reduce waste and recover advanced biofuel and biofuel feedstocks for cleaner energy
Lansing, W.Va. -- Downey Ridge Environmental Company, developer of Greasezilla, confirmed that Chicago, New Orleans, Austin and Jacksonville will have the first Greasezilla systems to come online in the new year, building upon the momentum of the company’s successful 2020 growth. The installations will be completed in the next three months with at least 10 additional systems anticipated before the end of 2021.
Initially developed for independent haulers and wastewater treatment facilities, Greasezilla is the leading, purely ecological solution to the overabundance of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) created from commercial and industrial food production facilities worldwide. In addition, Greasezilla’s ability to turn the problem of FOG waste into a sustainable energy source addresses larger infrastructure, environmental and energy issues.
“We believe that 2021 will be another explosive year of growth for Greasezilla,” Ron Crosier, CEO, Downey Ridge Environmental Company, said, “Greasezilla is filling the global need for a practical and ecological FOG processing solution. By recovering instead of consuming resources, Greasezilla reduces waste, provides a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels and protects water resources.”
Over the last year, Greasezilla received growing attention around the world:
- Expansion into new industry sectors: As the leading clean technology in commercial FOG separation, the Greasezilla hydronic thermal separation system is increasingly becoming a “front-end” processing technology across six clean technology verticals, including biofuel production, biodiesel manufacturing, and water reclamation.
- Increase in Client Installations: With tipping fees at an all-time high and disposal options continuing to shrink, more haulers are beginning to incorporate Greasezilla into their operations to reduce costs. Additionally, Greasezilla is being designed into state-of-the-art receiving stations and wastewater treatment plants, such as HRSD’s Nansemond Treatment Plant, to manage FOG separation.
- Introduction of the Greasezilla modular system: Greasezilla introduced a new standalone modular system with the flexibility to be placed at the source of grease creation. The new configuration allows any handler of brown grease waste, such as haulers, food processing facilities and even large public facilities, to benefit from the technology.
- Greater focus on sustainable energy: As countries and even fossil fuel companies seek more sustainable energy sources, Greasezilla is receiving attention from the energy sector for its ability to produce a low-moisture, high-FFA brown grease advanced biofuel (ABF) offtake. The system also produces a high-quality feedstock for the creation of biogas.
“The world has finally reached a turning point, implementing green initiatives that reduce waste and generate cleaner energy,” said Brian Levine, executive vice president, Downey Ridge Environmental Company, “The renewable energy sector is booming, and people are beginning to understand how Greasezilla’s simple, cost-effective and eco-friendly FOG-to-fuel solution can help them meet their environmental goals.”
Industry indicators suggest that renewable energy will continue to accelerate in 2021 as countries place increased priority on clean energy and net-zero carbon emissions, paving the way for wider adoption of alternative technologies. Greasezilla’s ability to use FOG waste as a resource has the potential to reduce pressure on the environment, boost economic growth and strengthen the world’s economic transition from linear to circular.
