Just got a call from a guy in Prineville Oregon that has a commercial Bio plant for sale. He and his partner invested over $200,000 in an all stainless biodiesel plant and cannot get any WVO in his area. They thought they had all the WVO they needed, but another rendering co came in and signed contracts with every resturant within a hundred miles and now cannot find enough to run the plant. He offered me the whole thing for 30K. I'm going down there next week to check it out!
I have started a local farm co-op here and won't need WVO because the farmers will grow canola for the co-op. This just might be the ticket to get started here for a lot less money than we were counting on!
Wow! That sounds awesome. If it turns out to be a legit system, you could set up a hell of a coop with a commercial system. I hope you'll post up what you find out and if you move forward. I've thought about doing something similar here where I live.
