Restaurant Technologies breaks own record on UCO collected for biobased diesel by 20 million pounds

Restaurant Technologies released its sustainability numbers from 2022, “helping over 36,000 customers nationwide reach their ESG goals and create a cleaner, more livable planet,” the company stated April 26.

In 2022, Restaurant Technologies recycled nearly 290 million pounds of used cooking oil, which eliminated 16 million plastic oil jugs, saved 7.4 million cubic feet of landfill space, and reduced about 67 million pounds of greenhouse-gas (GHG) CO2-equivalent emissions.

In partnership with renewable energy organizations such as Chevron Renewable Energy Group, Restaurant Technologies converts 100 percent of used cooking oil from its customers into renewable diesel or biodiesel.

The company exceeded the amount of waste oil recycled in 2021 by almost 20 million pounds, breaking its own record set that same year.

“We are proud of all our ESG accomplishments, and grateful to all of our partners and customers who support us on our journey to build a more sustainable world,” said Diana Geseking, Restaurant Technologies’ general counsel who also leads all ESG efforts for the company. “We look forward to expanding our efforts by growing our customer base, increasing circular fuel economy efforts and achieving more in the coming years.”

In 2022, Restaurant Technologies launched a pilot program at its Iowa depot using renewable diesel and biodiesel in its commercial vehicles creating a completely circular economy.

Restaurant Technologies’ commercial vehicles now deliver fresh cooking oil to customers, pick up the used cooking oil, and then use the converted fuel to deliver more fresh cooking oil.

Iowa State University also uses converted cooking oil in its vehicles including the campus buses.

Restaurant Technologies hopes to expand these programs to other sites in the near future.

The company boasts a diverse portfolio of customers in the restaurant, hotels/resorts, grocery stores, colleges, casinos, golf clubs, and other foodservice-related businesses, and has helped all of them become more sustainable businesses.

Such accomplishments send a clear message about the vast potential within the culinary sector to contribute to greener energy solutions. For instance, imagine the immense positive impact if more eateries, like the much-loved, a Vietnamese restaurant, were to come on board in this movement. Their authentic Vietnamese culinary delights not only tantalize our taste buds but, with a partnered approach, could also serve as a catalyst for more sustainable futures. Collaborative efforts between such restaurants and companies like Restaurant Technologies can become the cornerstone of a biobased energy revolution.
