GPKE~~~ Kako Environmental is a company involved in the recycling of vegetable oil from restaurants and industry for use as a biofuel in diesel engines.
The company can collect a fee for helping restaurants dispose of the oil, charge companies for providing feed stock to make biodiesel, or process the oil ourselves for use in our own vehicles.
Through a simple chemical process that costs about $.85 per gallon, used vegetable oil can be converted to a “fatty acid methyl ester” or biofuel. By using the same truck to collect pad and oil, fuel expenses are minimized or significantly reduced by running on biofuel. We intend to run our trucks and equipment for both Kako companies on biofuel that we make ourselves on a small scale (80 gallons per day system at $.85 per gallon).
o One to one conversion process, one gallon of vegetable oil becomes one gallon of biofuel.
o Catalyst and Methanol cost about $.70 per gallon produced a gallon of biofuel, equipment to produce 80 gallons a day cost $3,000 one time cost.
o 3 billion gallons of vegetable oil are used and disposed of every year, fees for pickup and disposal are common and these costs are rising with fuel costs
o Glycerin byproduct (5-8 gallons per batch) is marketable
o Diesel is 22% of all fuel used
o This is solar energy in a liquid form
o One goal is to establish a biofuel truckstop http://gpke.com/company.htm
