Chilean city expands UCO biodiesel program into neighborhoods

October 4, 2017 |

In Chile, the city of Concepción has launched a used cooking oil collection program to complement the UCO collection from restaurants last year in an effort to boost biodiesel production. Last year, 165,000 liters of UCO was collected but hope the project’s expansion will see 200,000 liters collected annually as a result. Various collection points around the city will be set up to collect small amounts of oil deposited in individual plastic containers to help reduce the amount of UCO households dump into the sewage system.
