Once you have finished frying your chips or whatever else you use cooking oil for, what do you do with the used oil? You can’t tip it down the drain – that can cause BIG problems, and putting it in the bin can get more than a little messy. So what are the other options?
Well, if you recycle used cooking oil properly, it can be used in so many other ways. EM Oils Ltd is a cost-effective oil collection and oil recycling service. Get in touch with us today to see how we can help you dispose of and recycle your used cooking oil responsibly.
What can be done with your used or wasted cooking oil?
It can be used in vehicles as a biofuel
Your used cooking oil can help produce various biofuels, a cleaner-burning alternative to petrol that reduces carbon emissions by up to 85 per cent per gallon. As society becomes more eco-friendly, the demand for an alternative to petroleum diesel increases. The first step in the procedure involves your service provider collecting it from your eatery and transporting it to a processing facility. Once there, the food waste is broken down and refined into materials that may be used to make fuel. After that, it is sent to a biofuel manufacturing facility, where it undergoes the transformation necessary to produce the fuel that could power vehicles.
It can be used to remove paint
Paint is a substance that can be extremely challenging to remove from surfaces or your hands, regardless of how thoroughly you wash them. Simply applying the used cooking oil to the area where the paint has to be removed is all that is required to remove paint from various surfaces.
It can be used as protection for furniture and appliances
A coating of used or waste cooking oil can be applied to leather furniture to protect it and maintain the material’s longevity. The same may be said about utensils, cookware, and other kitchen implements. After cleaning, reapplying used cooking oil to pots and pans can help extend the amount of time they are helpful for cooking.
It can be used in composting
Used cooking oil can be composted in tiny quantities, although this depends on the type of oil used. Because it is made from organic material, composting works better with vegetable oil than other types of oil. However, adding an excessive amount will cause the process to move more slowly and produce a putrid stink, attracting rodents and other animals that will become a nuisance.
The manner in which you discard the waste from your cooking can go a long way toward helping the environment and producing a variety of items and appliances for the home. It is likely that you have made a purchase of one of the items on the list in the recent past. The waste produced by your fryer serves a useful purpose if it is managed and recycled appropriately by a qualified service provider such as EM Oils. Call us today to find out more.
