Water Recovery

Rendering reclaims and protects valuable water that could otherwise be wasted or contaminated. Roughly four billion gallons of water are reclaimed during the rendering process. That water meets federal, state, and local standards when returned to rivers and streams.

But rendering helps water in more ways than only output — renderer pickup of used cooking grease and oil, saves municipal sewer and wastewater systems from becoming clogged causing millions of dollars in damage, repairs and compromising water quality. Thanks to Rendering, that is not a concern.
