A&C Fats and Oil Facility
Colony has formed a strategic joint venture with Ameriguard Maintenance Services LLC, one of the leading used cooking oil collection companies in Central CA. Ameriguard collects used cooking oil from restaurants and food processing facilities and delivers it to the oil upgrading facility at Ameriguard’s property in Fresno that was built and is operated by the A&C partnership. The oil is upgraded at the facility into a valuable feedstock for the production of biodiesel. When produced from used cooking oil, CARB scores biodiesel with the lowest carbon intensity rating compared to other feedstocks. Biodiesel is generally blended with diesel at 5% throughout the state of California generating valuable low carbon fuel credits for fuel producers and marketers that blend the fuel.
