Airmall USA, the leading airport concessions developer in North America and operator of the Airmall at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall), recently announced a partnership with Greenlight Biofuels to recycle used cooking oil (UCO) from tenants in the airport’s concession program into biodiesel.

“We're pleased to partner with Greenlight Biofuels to implement a responsible alternative for disposing of waste cooking oil from airport tenants,” said Brett Kelly, vice president of Airmall Maryland. “This recycling program is an example of how Airmall strives to adopt innovative and ecofriendly ideas and technologies that benefit the airport, the concessions program, and the environment.”

“Here at Greenlight Biofuels, we're thrilled when new customers are excited about environmental responsibility and sustainability to the same degree we are,” said Jim Kingdon, president of Greenlight Biofuels. “The decision that Airmall has made at BWI Marshall, to recycle used cooking oil for the production of biofuels, is a testament to the role all industries can play in pushing America toward energy independence and a brighter future.”

“BWI Marshall is pleased to support this initiative, which will further improve our renowned recycling program,” said Paul J. Wiedefeld, CEO of BWI Marshall. “This innovative program will benefit the environment and our concessions.”
