Energy Sources in Unusual Places – What Happens to Your Used Cooking Oil?

Not many of us think about what happens to the cooking oil we use to cook our French fries or delicious chicken sandwiches. In fact, several of us might assume that the liquid is simply disposed of – after all, it used to be thrown away all the time after it was used. Now, however, used cooking oil is seen as “liquid gold” and can be used to fuel and create so much that we take for granted.

What was once costly to dispose of is now being harnessed as a valuable commodity in cleaner-burning alternatives to coal and oil. A business’s used cooking oil is collected, filtered, heated in tanks to remove water, and then recycled into valuable products that are then used to create plastics, soaps, livestock fuel, and most of all, biodiesel. Within about a week’s time, your used cooking oil can be put to great use, all while decreasing the use of fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources.
