Used Cooking Oil is a composition of different mixture of oils discarded from the industrial deep fryers. This undergoes intense dewatering and filtration from sludge. Oil such as Canola Oil, Sunflower Oil, Palm Olein, Soybean oil are discarded and can be repurposed for use as a feedstock for biodiesel.
