Sustainable Statistics

Americans generate approximately 300 million tons of waste in one year. Buffalo Fuel is a manufactured product and alternative to coal fit for some of the nation’s largest commercial applications, including cement kilns and lime kilns. As an engineered alternative energy source made from non-hazardous waste, Buffalo Fuel transforms businesses’ operational approaches to emissions regulations.

42 fewer gallons of fuel oil required.

50 pounds of metal saved from landfills.

Enough energy to power one home for one month.

One ton of greenhouse gases (CO2) avoided.
