CST 280 - FUEL OIL

UCO is waste or spent cooking and frying oils collected from commercial food factories, restaurants, arenas, casinos, schools, bakeries, etc. While the majority of used cooking oils are vegetable based, by no means should UCO be considered “waste vegetable oil” as there is inevitably some level of animal fat in UCO, which is naturally derived from the cooking process, and of course some restaurants cook in fats rather than oils.

Application:

  • Processing into biofuels / biodiesel) often referred to as biostock
  • Blending into animal feed for cattle and poultry as yellow grease
  • Dust suppression (roads, construction and drilling),
  • As furnace and boiler fuel.
