The local unit of German discount chain operator Aldi and partner Biofilter Kornyezetvedelmi have collected 100 tonnes of used household cooking oil in Hungary over the past 15 months, Aldi Magyarország said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Aldi and Biofilter partnered in 2020 and the retailer now collects used cooking oil at 100 stores in Hungary.

Hungarian households generate 25,000 tonnes of used cooking oil a year, of which only around 500 tonnes of oil is collected.  

Biofilter has 4,500 partners across the country including supermarket chains, hotels, gas stations and fast-food restaurants. Biofilter collected almost 5,600 tonnes of used cooking last year.
