When preheated, brown grease can be utilized as crude bio-boiler fuel in conjunction with diesel fuel to prime and clean the system before and after each usage.

According to international convention, CO2 emissions from biofuel combustion are excluded from national greenhouse gas emissions inventories as growing the biomass feedstocks used for biofuel production may offset the CO2 produced when biofuels are burned.

US FOG market is projected to have largest market share during the forecast period

The US FOG market for yellow and brown grease is likely to be driven by the increasing production of biofuels and government initiatives and subsidies on biofuels production. According to the US Energy Information Administration, the US production of biodiesel was 159 million gallons in December 2020.
