This year Radisson Blu hotel, Kyiv, has launched a new campaign regarding recycling oil from the kitchen. They have signed an agreement with an Ukranian company which buys cooking oil from the hotel. After the recycling process the company receives biodiesel.
Biodiesel is a biodegradable combustible fuel, which is usually made from vegetable oil or animal fat. It is desirable as an alternative to petroleum fuel because it uses renewable resources that are less damaging to the environment. It also produces and emits less harmful greenhouse gasses when burned as fuel.
Biodiesel fuel can be used in any vehicle with a compression ignition engine that can take regular diesel fuel.
Thanks to this campaign, 60 litres of the substance every three weeks can be recycled!
