Apart from this, the elevating usage of vegetable oil, as frying is an essential food preparation method for Indian culinary form, has led to the large remains of used cooking oil. The expanding HoReCa sector, along with the growing consciousness towards recyclability of UCO to reduce pollution levels is further bolstering the regional market.
