Used cooking oil (UCO), or waste vegetable oil, is produced by the repeated use of cooking oils in hotels, restaurants, food processing units and household sectors. It is the leftover cooking oil and is obtained from sunflower, corn, canola, olive, palm, rapeseed, soya oils and animal fats. It is also available in mixed compositions. Recycled and processed UCOs are widely used for the manufacturing of soaps, composts, oleochemicals, hydrogenated vegetable oils (HVO), industrial greases, biodiesels and animal feed. In comparison to the traditionally used materials, UCO is highly cost-effective, environment-friendly and readily available in bulk quantities for mass production of various products.
Used Cooking Oil Market Trends:
The increasing adoption of bio-based fuels across the globe is one of the key factors driving the market growth. The consumer preference is rapidly shifting from petroleum-based fuels toward biodiesel and green energy fuels with a lower carbon footprint due to rising environmental consciousness. Moreover, the widespread adoption of UCO in the manufacturing of animal feed is providing a thrust to the growth of the market. Significant growth in the food and beverage industry is also creating a positive outlook for the market. Cooking oils used in the preparation of fast food and other fried products are processed and further utilized as UCOs in industrial plants. Additionally, improvements in the processing and manufacturing technologies are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are developing innovative ozone-treated oils with high calorific value and lower ignition points. UCO is also widely being used as a fermentation media component that acts as a carbon source in microorganisms for biodiesel production. Other factors, including the implementation of favorable government policies, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
