Pork producers who pride themselves on using every part of the pig except the oink, have seen the use of lard in cookies, chips and other foods decrease. In search of alternative outlets should the lard become nonmarketable, a team of Penn State researchers has found that lard and choice white grease can replace Nos. 4 and 6 fuel oil in process steam boilers with little or no retrofitting.
The above story is based on materials provided by Penn State. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
