168 Jersey City Establishments are Turning Grease Into Green. We are please to announce that over the past year Unity Fuel’s Grease Lightening Program has collected 34,817 gallons of waste vegetable oil from Jersey City establishments. This is tremendous for the city, and for the environment. It has also removed 605,800 lbs of carbon emissions from the air, helping to remove the smog and particulants that cause asthma.
Every single drop of these collections has been cleaned using Unity Fuel’s proprietary and patent pending technology and used exclusively in Biodiesel.
The program, a partnership between Destination Jersey City, the Jersey City Economic Development Corporation, and Unity Fuels’ Grease Lightning, pays participating food-service organizations 10¢ per gallon for used cooking oil.
The contractual agreement and other information about the program may be obtained by phoning Grease Lightning/Unity Fuels at 973-531-7816 or visiting their website www.yourwasteourfuel.com.
