From Chicken to Diesel

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain, says that it will start handing over its cooking oil to be used as car gas.

The company says that it will partner with Darling Ingredients, a Texas-based company, to collect oil and residue cooking grease from U.S. and Canadian stores. The company can also turn “meat waste” into fuel, including trimmings, bones, expired meat and inedible scraps. The company processes these items into diesel fuel that can be used by vehicles. The company is on track to produce more than 700 million gallons of diesel this year. That is an impressive number but less so when you consider that the U.S. can go through that amount in two days.

One can imagine that Chick-fil-A has a lot of waste to hand over with over 2,700 restaurants in North America. Just remember, there is no service on Sundays!
