BioFuel Comes Full Circle

 

  Here at Guilford Dining we’ve been recycling our used fryer grease with Piedmont Biofuels for years. We knew that this awesome company took the used fryer grease and turned it into something useful, but until recently “something useful” was an abstract idea, not something specific. Last Thursday I took a trip to Cane Creek Farm to pick up some incredible pork for our annual Feed the Difference dinner, and couldn’t resist the temptation to stop in for a snack at The Saxapahaw General Store. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Piedmont Biofuels pumping station at the store. It’s kind of cool to see first hand that our fryer grease is getting put to good use. It’s even cooler to know that Guilford College is working towards switching some of its fleet over to using that same biodiesel, and that we’d have our own pumping station here on campus, too!
