Biodiesel, Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), Ethanol and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) are all examples of biofuels. They are produced from renewable, biological feedstocks reducing the fuel’s carbon footprint.
Alternative and renewable fuels, such as biodiesel, clean and environmentally friendly, derived from vegetable oils and animal fats, are one of the answers to pollution problems. Used cooking oil is cheaper than pure vegetable oils and is regarded as a suitable substitute.
The use of UCO as a second feedstock presents the additional advantage of alleviating disposal challenges. The quantity of cooking oil produced each year is massive and, when converted, can meet a large share of the world’s bio-diesel demand. Once refined, this leads to Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester (UCOME) or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) to name a couple.
