Scientists to convert waste oil to fuel

TEHRAN, Jun. 22 (MNA) – Iranian scientists of a tech-based company have joined the scholars of Amir Kabir University to counter the downsides of the waste oil.

The MD of a technology-based company supported by Amir Kabir University of Iran, Behboud Bashiri Miandoab told Mehr News Agency about his plan to develop a technology to counter the negative effects of Liquefied fat, oil, or grease (FOG) on environment.

"One of the current ideas dealing with waste cooking oil in the world is converting it to clean fuel and we are working on it," Bashiri told our reporter adding that according to their research conducted on cooking oil it can be used as an alternative source of energy.

He also added that currently they have managed to process the waste oil making it ready to be taken to Biodiesel Reactors.

The waste cooking oil that is poured down into the kitchen sink drain can cause serious impacts including clinging to the insides of pipes and the sewer system. Over time, it can build up and can eventually block pipes completely. If wastewater can’t move freely through pipes and out into the sewer system, it can back up into people home and can cause unsanitary conditions and damages that can be expensive to repair.

Of environmental problems of the waste oil is also the contamination of the water resources which would cause irreparable damages.
