WV-based Greasezilla solving world’s grease waste problems with carbon-negative solution


That doughnut you had with your coffee may have been delicious, but like any deep-fried food, it comes with a cost.

That’s innovation - in the Mountain State. Read the story on the West Virginia Development Office web site
