Believe it or not, used cooking oil can now be turned in to electricity!
Certain councils throughout the UK are offering trial collections of cooking oil so it can be turned into a biofuel to produce green electricity.
Every year, tens of thousands of litres of used cooking oil are poured down the drain costing millions of pounds to clean up. The cooking oil that’s collected can be refined into a biofuel – one litre of biofuel generates enough clean electricity to make 240 cups of tea, whislt one tonne (1,111 one litre bottles of cooking oil) provide enough to power the aveage home for a year.
