In South Korea, the Korea Herald newspaper reports that the use of waste animal fat-based bio-oil to produce electricity has been approved by the trade ministry as of January as part of the country’s attempt to reduce nuclear energy use by nearly 24% and use 20% renewable energy by 2030. The ministry has been undertaking tests at five power plants since 2014 using waste fat-based and used cooking oil-based biodiesel to prepare for the switch. Compared to heavy oil currently used for power production, running on 100% bio-oil reduces NOX by 39% and GHG by 85%.
