REA Resource Recovery Systems is a technology company focused on solving an estimated $126 billion annual problem faced by wastewater treatment plants worldwide.
Billions of gallons of FOG (fats, oils, grease) are discharged into sewers annually, causing large-scale problems such as pipe blockages that lead to sanitary sewer overflows. FOG is costly to manage, treat and dispose, and has a negative impact on the environment.
REA’s technology diverts and captures FOG from sewer systems and transforms this waste into premium-grade biodiesel (ASTM B100) that can be used to fuel municipal operations. Think school buses, public works vehicles, fire engines, etc.
With our intellectual property, developed under the auspices of the University of Connecticut over the past 14 years, we are a market leader in FOG management solutions for wastewater treatment plants worldwide.
