Default $1.25/gal Delivered

I've beein in contact with a local Bio company for a while and I was just informed of a price drop on their "yellow grease". Initially it was about $0.30/lb for the oil, which was $3.00/gallon. I wasn't interested because my oil was $2.00/gal.

He e-mailed me today and he is selling for $1.25/gallon DELIVERED!!

I asked him how far he would be willing to deliver and I'm waiting for a response. He is close enough to me that I could just drive 10 minutes to his facility and fill up the truck without worrying about delivery.

Would any of you guys be interested? He has thousands of gallons available.

They are a huge company and they have been sending thousands of gallons overseas for a while now.

Buffalo Bio-Diesel uses a CF for their filtering, I'm waiting on the rest of the specs.

Seems like a very fair price for clean/dry oil. Like Clay said I would want to sample some before dumping it into the rig. Let me know what you find out as I may be interested in some to build my surplus back up.

Once the owner gets back to me I'll fill you guys in. I'm also getting a delivery radius.

Check out the pictures from the facility, they are awesome.

Yellow Grease Buffalo Biodiesel Inc. is proud to offer high quality yellow grease for Biodiesel production to Biodiesel producers both in America and Abroad.

Typical Analysis:

Buffalo Biodiesel has shipped feedstock to the USA, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Isreal and South Korea. We have the best quality yellow grease on the market at the best possible prices. Why is our product so good and so cheap?

1. We process our oil right here onsite. No shipping, no outsourcing, no problems.

2. We do not mix our oil with trap grease like the other guys. We pickup our own waste cooking oil and insure high quality product right from the source.

3. We process it better than anyone else. We run our oil through 4 filter sets before heating it to over 180 degrees for at least 24 hours. We then polish the oil through our 3 stage 40 GPM centrifuge.

4. We are reliable. Since we collect and process in house we can supply consistant and steady product unlike most of the other guys. We can also lock into long term contracts at FIXED pricing.

5. We can ship in totes, ISO tanks, tankers, drums and flexi tanks.
