USED COOKING OIL (UCO)

USE FOR BIODIESEL

The used cooking oil is the most demanded residue by the first and second generation biodiesel plants to be mixed with fresh vegetable oil and produce UCOME completely on specification. It is also highly demanded by oil refineries that can convert it in HVO, also known as blue diesel, after a previous treatment to reduce the metals content. As a waste that is, its characteristics are not homogeneous and vary depending on the origin, the raw material of which it is made and the use and type of collection that has been given.
