Used cooking oil disposal in Józsefváros

Last updated: (Létrehozva: )

Frying in fat or oil is one of the most common cooking techniques today. However, repeated frying produces compounds in the frying oil that are harmful to the human body, so the fat should be replaced completely after a few fryings.

Used frying oil and frying fat that is not collected is spread on the surface of the water when it reaches the sewage treatment plant, causing great damage to the environment by preventing the purification of the waste water and preventing oxygen from flowing into the water. Once in the soil, it inhibits the permeability of the soil and prevents the water from rising to the surface by forming a barrier. If used cooking oil is disposed of in municipal waste, it will eventually end up in the soil or in the ground as a poorly biodegradable material. A litrer of cooking oil can pollute up to a million liters of water.
