Oil

What’s hidden behind the waste oil

Some of us cannot live without it in the kitchen, but all we could avoid throwing the food oil into the environment and dispose of it in the correct manner. View this small premise, let’s refute some myth concerning the waste oil.

Many believe that is biodegradable and organic, but it isn’t: the oil can create countless damage to the environment in which it’s dispersed.

For first thing it mustn’t, for any reason, thrown in the sink drain, in water, in the sewer or trash cans because if dispersed in water it forms a thick layer from 3 to 5 centimeters that prevents the sunlight to penetrate the soil.

In addition to this serious problem, the waste oil could reach the flaps, to prevent the correct operation of the purifiers and make the non-drinking water.

Another common place to dispel is that the frying oil can even be a fertilizer for plants. In addition to penetrate into the ground, with all the consequences that derive from it and that we have just described, the waste oil impoverishes the soil eliminating all the microorganisms necessary for the life of the plants.

So what are the recommendations to eliminate oil used in your kitchens? There are different and simple possibilities such as take it in “ecological islands“, or pour it in suitable containers that are located in different supermarkets or petrol stations.

After harvest it, the specialized firms think to give new life to the cooking oil that, after a specific treatment, will plant lubricants for agricultural machines, biodiesel and glycerin for saponification.
