From Kitchen Waste to Money: Sustainable Chemicals for the Future
In under 2 hours!
From Waste to Money $$
Transforms Kitchen waste
It's a simple process that can turn organic waste into fuels and usable chemicals for profit! (Maher, Bressler, 2006)
Through this process, we can divert 200 million tonnes of waste kitchen oil from seeping into lakes and rivers and into something profitable!
( Gustavsson, Cederburg, Sonesson, Otterdijik, Meybeck, 2011
That's thousands of wildlife saved!
(Thimmanagari, McDonald, Todd, 2010)
Valuable compounds up to 423$ per gram can be created through the pyrolysis of waste kitchen oil!
Through pyrolysis we're literally turning garbage to profit and saving the environment at the same time!
What is Pyrolysis?
The rapid craking of chemical bonds under high temperatures, then cooled rapidly to create new products (Demibras, 2009)
The future of recycling is here! It is attainable, profitable, and sustainable
