Fast-Food Oil-Coating Improves Smart Roofing
An innovative fast-food oil coating may transform the white, smart-roof concept in the United States.
As fast-food oils continue to be recycled for car and machinery biodiesel fuels, a new application has been prompted by company United Environment & Energy: roof-shingle coating.
Funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, fast food waste oil forms into a coated plastic polymer when applied to exterior surfaces. When paired with the much-heralded white roof solution supported by Energy Secretary Steven Chu, the potential for soaking sunlight, saving energy and cooling buildings is endless.
