University donates used cooking oil to fuel local school buses with biodiesel

October 17, 2012 |

In North Carolina, recycled cooking oil from Eastern Carolina University will be donated and converted to biodiesel for use in local Pitt County school buses. Campus cooking oil will be sold to a biodiesel plant in nearby Wilson and redistributed for the buses. The recycling program, called Biodiesel 4 Schools, is a partnership with environmental fundraising group Green Circle and allows the biofuel to stay in Pitt County without incurring fees for distribution or conversion. So far, roughly 620 gallons of used cooking oil have been donated using the Biodiesel 4 Schools program.
