MOL has collected 1,900 tonnes of used cooking oil since 2011

Hungary’s oil and gas company MOL has collected 1,900 tonnes of used cooking oil since 2011, saving thousands of gallons of natural water from pollution.

In Hungary, frying oil waste is dealt with only when generated in factories or in restaurants, while the household’s one often ends up in the garbage contaminating natural water.

In 2011, MOL has launched an ideal, environmentally friendly solution by creating at least 350 filling stations across the country, so that the people could get rid of used cooking oil. Since then, 1,900 tonnes of used cooking oil have been collected, in particular in the Pest county.

Biofilter, an environmental company specialised in the bioenergy sector, collects the used oil delivered to the designated MOL filling stations and it delivers it to a plant, where it is recycled in order to produce biofuel.
