Two New Usages of Waste Cooking Oil Reported
We all know that vegetable oil is widely used in daily cooking, food production, and cosmetics. How will you deal with your waste oil? The problem, most of you just throw them away. Nowadays, We noticed two new ways of dealing with waste cooking oil which is being used in different areas and both of them have achieved some effects. Maybe they will be helpful to you. Come and learn about them. These days, the Marikina city government encouraged its residents to give their used cooking oil to the City Environment Management Office (CEMO) instead of just throwing it away. According to them, the oil will be mixed and melted down with another recycled styrofoam to make decorative paving blocks for use in the city’s parks and playgrounds. “The dispose of used cooking oil can prevent it from contaminating the water system, especially Marikina River,” said one of the expertise. “The program will also prevent the residents from repeatedly using used cooking oil which may cause severe diseases that may lead to cancer,” he added.
December 2011, McDonald’s delivery trucks in the United Arab Emirates(UAE) have reached the 800,000-mile running on a different sort of oil — recycled cooking oil.100 percent of the used oil from the UAE’s McDonald’s restaurants is turned back into biofuel, through biodiesel producer Neutral Fuels and all the fuel is left completely unblended with regular fossil fuels, making it 100 percent biodiesel. The scheme has been running in the UAE for 17 months. According to Design News, McDonald’s is one of the biggest companies to attempt such a scheme so far. Every month, Neutral fuels collect over 6,600 gallons of used oil, in trucks already running on biodiesel. In return, these same trucks also deliver new oil and other supplies to the restaurants.
Actually, the UAE isn’t the only country in which the company is operating the system in. In the UK, McDonald’s vehicles get 100 percent of their fuel from recycled cooking oil-based biodiesel. In Europe as a whole, 80 percent of the company’s waste oil is turned into biodiesel, and 37 percent of the total fleet is run on the fuel. Even in the U.S, 75 percent of eligible restaurants recycle their cooking oil, contributing an average of 1,450 gallons of used oil every year.
From the above, we can foresee that waste cooking oil reusing will become more and more popular in the near future. For not only does using waste oil ensure products are recycled, but it’s also significantly cheaper than biodiesel made from feedstock.
