Used cooking oil is considered hazardous waste, but it can be safely disposed of at Mol's more than 350 filling stations, the company said, noting that at Easter, households use more fats than average, which can be recycled by collecting and disposing of it properly.
As the state news agency MTI reports, Mol's cooking oil collection program was launched in 2011, and since then the public has donated around 3 million liters of used cooking oil.
According to the information, used cooking oil poured down the drain or into the trash is harmful to the environment and its collection and processing is therefore of primary environmental interest.
Cooking oil can cause sewer blockages when deposited on the walls of pipes and, when poured into household garbage, is a persistent material that ends up in landfills. When it enters living water, it prevents oxygen uptake by floating on the water surface, killing aquatic life. One liter of cooking oil can contaminate up to one million liters of drinking water.
Mol's filling stations offer a simple, quick and environmentally friendly way to dispose of used cooking oil, the company said.
They explained that, as it is a household quantity, a maximum of 10 liters can be disposed of at a time. No extra filtration is required, food residue from frying can remain, but the frying oil must not be contaminated with other waste, substances or chemicals.
The waste cooking oil is collected by Biofilter Plc. and, after purification, sent to the Rossi Biofuel plant in Komárom, where it is used to produce biofuel. This will turn it from environmentally harmful waste into a recycled, environmentally friendly product that will be used as a bio-component in the production of diesel at Mol's refinery in Százhalombatta, the company added.
