MOL recycles 280 tons of used cooking oil
Since launching its cooking oil recycling project in 2011, Hungarian fuel company MOL has collected 280 tons of used cooking oil from customers.
Some 178 MOL gas stations around the company distribute red flasks to customers, who can fill the flasks with used cooking oil and bring the container back to the gas station. MOL takes the used oil to the Rossi Biofuel plant in Komárom where biofuel is produced from the waste.
MOL says it started its initiative as a way to protect the environment, noting that a typical Hungarian household consumes three liters of cooking oil per month. The oil takes a long time to biodegrade, and it can enter the water supply, so recycling is preferable to disposal.
