Used Cooking Oil collection and sales
Turning one industry’s by-product into another industry’s raw material.
UCO dedicated companies in Norway, Sweden and Denmark are part of MBP Solutions. Every year, we handle more than 200,000 tons 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. Oil is used in the 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. MBP can help manage the waste oil collection process.
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 for used cooking oil collection and waste transfer. 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. We will provide excellent used cooking oil collection. MBP also manages other kinds of waste oil collection.
What happens to the used cooking oil?
When the waste cooking oil arrives at our production facilities, we process and clean the used cooking oil by heating it to liquid form. The fat is separated from waste/debris, which consists mainly of water and protein from food waste or residue.
When processing is finished the purified oil is used as a raw material in biodiesel production or 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 should we manage waste cooking oil collection and recycling?
We are helping to protect the environment, animals and people by managing used oil collection and recycling cooking oil so that it can be used again.
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 used cooking oil 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 through cooking oil collection and reuse.
Cooking oil recycling means that 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 manage cooking oil collection and utilize the waste oil again for biodiesel production, it is better for both humans and the environment. This is because a second generation vegetable oil that does not compete with food production in the world or contribute to the destruction of the rainforest.
