Thanks to years of research and innovation, biodiesel is now produced from a variety of sources, or feedstocks. t Of these many sources, used cooking oil – the feedstock used by SeQuential – is perhaps the most sustainable. It’s created from materials that have already served their primary purpose, which helps reduce the need to grow crops specifically for fuel production, and dramatically lowers the carbon footprint of the resulting biodiesel.
Strict regulations in many cities mean that restaurant operators must pay close attention to how they use and dispose of cooking oil. Fortunately, working with a vendor like SeQuential makes it easy to get rid of your used cooking oil. At SeQuential, we collect cooking oil and refine it into clean-burning biodiesel through a low-waste process. All you have to do is fill the provided container with your oil.
