Cooking oil fuels cars

Cooking oil fuels cars
Waste from restaurants such as used cooking oil is being utilised as a form of low carbon fuel in Nottinghamshire.

An environmental company called Untapped Resource is running vehicles on bio-fuel made from materials collected from 30 establishments across the region.

The firm claimed that it started the initiative in order to stop caterers from blocking drains by pouring oil and fat down sinks.

Maria Gibson from Untapped Resource said: "Any vehicle that runs on ordinary diesel can run on bio-fuel, which is as economical and eco-friendly.

"Our company van runs on bio-fuel, it's very green and your exhaust does not spit out used food or smell."

Fish and chip shops and Indian restaurants are among the eateries signed up to the scheme.

Kasa Miah, from Indian restaurant Naaz in Mansfield, agreed that the project "benefits everyone".

UK government legislation introduced two years ago makes small businesses responsible for treating their own waste.
