Grease Guardian Welcoming the Amerigo Vespucci in Los Angeles

/ / blog

We are excited to announce the arrival of the Amerigo Vespucci, often hailed by Italians as the world’s most beautiful ship, into the Port of Los Angeles on July 3rd, 2024. This majestic vessel is not only a symbol of Italian maritime pride but also a floating ambassador of Italian heritage and innovation on its round-the-world tour from 2023 to 2025. During its journey, the Amerigo Vespucci is showcasing temporary expositions at various ports, highlighting Italian products and cultural heritage.

One of the remarkable features of the Amerigo Vespucci is its commitment to sustainability, exemplified by the installation of a Grease Guardian Marine Automatic Grease Removal Device on board. Grease Guardian’s innovative technology helps manage kitchen grease efficiently, transforming it from waste into a valuable resource.

In collaboration with World Energy, we aim to utilize this energy-rich feedstock, showcasing a ground-breaking partnership between our countries to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions. This initiative not only exemplifies our commitment to sustainability but also highlights the potential for global replication of our research, supporting the Amerigo Vespucci’s mission to foster international collaborations in scientific research and marine conservation.

Los Angeles is at the forefront of innovative environmental initiatives, and the arrival of the Amerigo Vespucci offers a phenomenal opportunity to demonstrate the Fork-to-Fuel Initiative. This new initiative leverages automatic grease removal technology to recover grease waste from cooking processes, converting it into a valuable resource. The high-quality grease collected using Grease Guardian technology meets laboratory standards for producing drop-in, engine-ready renewable energy and products already in use in California.

The City of Los Angeles’ Sanitation and Environment team is spearheading this innovative project, turning waste into resource throughout the city, including the port. By redirecting grease waste from the waste stream to the resource stream, we are unlocking incredible value and setting a precedent for sustainable waste management practices.
