Normally, recycling means transforming used materials that can no longer be used into materials that can be used again for the same purpose (as is the case with paper and glass). In the case of edible oils and fats, this does not happen because the used materials are used for different purposes, such as soap, detergents, etc.
Yes, all edible fats can be recycled. The following are considered to be edible fats: oil, olive oil, butter, margarine…
The oil should be used at most twice because when it is heated many times it undergoes successive temperature variations, altering its initial chemical composition. All these changes in the oil are harmful to health..
Yes, it can be recycled but you don’t normally use up as much at a time as you do with normal oil, so it is less common to gather enough to reuse.
Oil is extracted from sunflower seeds, soybeans, corn, peanuts, palm, etc.
When discharged directly into the pipes, the oil can create clogging and can cause serious problems in the treatment of water in the wastewater treatment plants.
The used oil is treated to remove impurities and moisture and to control certain chemical parameters in order to obtain the necessary conditions for its recycling. All this treatment is carried out with the help of mechanical equipment.
It should be deposited in containers provided by our company (oleon) or in plastic bottles or jugs with screw caps tightly closed.
The oil should go to recycling as clean as possible to facilitate cleaning treatment.
After being recycled, the oil is used in chemical industries (to manufacture soap, detergents, lubricants, paints, greases), and biofuels (biodiesel).
