Haryana pushing back against UCO for biodiesel due to low prices

In India, the Hindustan Times newspaper reports that despite President Modi’s recent policy announcement pushing for the mass collection of used cooking oil for use as biodiesel feedstock, restaurants in Haryana are reluctant to participate in the supply drive because the prices offered are almost half as much as what they currently get from soap makers. Local food safety officials have been working for more than half a year to devise the plan so that restaurants will no longer use oil more than three times, with as much as 1,000 restaurants meant to participate. A local company has set up a plant that produces 100 metric tons of UCO biodiesel per day.
