Used Cooking Oil collection and sales
UCO dedicated companies in Norway, Sweden and Denmark are part of MBP Solutions. Every year, we handle more than 200,000 tones of biological by-products that are processed and sold for new applications. Together we can make a significant and positive impact on the environment, reduce waste quantities and create sustainable raw materials for energy production.
Used cooking oil (UCO)
One of our main by-product activities is the collection and processing of used cooking oil (UCO). UCO is used cooking or frying oil of vegetable or animal origin. When used for some time the oil turns rancid and may give a bad smell and taste to the food. Change your oil regularly and get better results.
UCO is an important source of raw material for the production of biodiesel. We are a market leader in this field and we collect UCO from all over Scandinavia and Finland. It is easy to be our customer. We supply all our customers with containers suitable for storing UCO and offer different container sizes: 200, 400, 600 and 1000 liters. Our people take care of all collection-related tasks, including replacing full containers with clean, empty ones, ensuring our customers are not exposed to any risk.
So if you have any used fat or cooking oil, which you would like us to collect and handle for you, please contact us today.
What happens to the UCO?
When the UCO arrives at our production facilities, we process and clean the oil by heating it to liquid form. The fat is separated from waste/debris, which consists mainly of water and protein from food residue.
When processing is finished the purified oil is used as a raw material in biodiesel production, alternatively as technical grease or as an intermediate for distilling fatty acid and glycerol.
MBP is certified to a number of quality, environmental and sustainability standards. Your guarantee for good service and a good environment.
Why collect and reuse UCO?
By collecting and reusing UCO we are protecting the environment, people and animals.
For example, UCO in the sewage system causes major problems. The coatings can cause hydrogen sulphide (H2S), and give a bad smell. H2S is also a toxic gas and flammable at high concentrations. In many cities it is mandatory to have an agreement for collection of UCO.
Many people think of UCO as waste, but MBP considers it a by-product and a material that we can use again. We see UCO as a resource because we can reuse it!
UCO can be used instead of new vegetable oils, such as rapeseed oil, in the production of biodiesel. Today, many people consider it a problem that rapeseed oil is used in biodiesel production instead of food production, and that the rainforest is destroyed for the production of palm oil. If we use UCO for biodiesel production, it is better for both humans and the environment as it is a second generation vegetable oil that does not compete with food production in the world or contributes to the destruction of the rainforest.
MBP is ISCC certified according to the EU’s voluntary scheme. ISCC is an independent, global certification system that meets the requirements for sustainability criteria and greenhouse gas emissions. This is used to show the correspondence between government, corporate, and end user requirements. For more information about the ISCC, please visit the ISCC official website.
