GTECH is transforming the economic and environmental liability of waste cooking oil (over 1 million gallons/year in Allegheny County) into biodiesel. Waste cooking oil is a problem for our municipalities and our rivers. It clogs our pipes, causing ruptures and constricting our sewer system’s capacity during a storm event. Petroleum-diesel used in Pittsburgh is responsible for carcinogenic air pollution, climate change emissions and millions of dollars leaving our region and the country.
As of November 2013, GTECH has partnered with Green Light Biofuels to offer businesses a way to have their waste give back to the community and guarantee that all oil collected goes to the production of fuel. If you are interested in starting up or switching your service, or just looking for more information. Fill out this form.
We are currently collecting non-hydrogenated vegetable oils which are free of contaminants like water, large pieces of food, detergents and animal fats. You can either drop off the oil at one of our area locations or schedule a pick up with us, just call 412-361-2099 6# or drop us a line.
