Italian UCO biodiesel production could jump with household collection

October 10, 2017 |

In Italy, household collection of used cooking oil could boost feedstock for biodiesel to 200,000 metric tons per year from the 70,000 tons currently collected from 100,000 restaurants. Eni recycles the UCO into biodiesel at its 360,000 ton biodiesel factory that will increase to 600,000 tons in 2020. The company is also set to invest $282 million in another plant in Sicily. Using UCO helps the company to reduce the amount of virgin oil it must use to produce fuel.
