Slick new plans for cooking oil


Cheshire East Catering Services have signed up to a scheme that means all waste cooking oil from school kitchens will now be recycled into bio-fuel.

The bio-fuel will be used by Middlewich-based company, Green2Go, to fuel generating systems that provide low carbon heat and power to public buildings.

Using bio-fuel instead of energy from the national grid reduces carbon emissions by 90%.

The oil will be collected from the 120 schools on behalf of Green2Go by its oil partner, Convert2Green, free of charge.

Cheshire East Council has recently installed cooking oil containers at their Household Waste Recycling Centres for people to dispose of their cooking oil waste properly. All waste oil collected will be used for transport fuel and to heat buildings.

Councillor Andrew Knowles, Cabinet member with responsibility for health and wellbeing, said: “As a Council we are very conscious of our environmental impact and we are continually seeking ways to reduce this.

“This scheme will mean that we are using one of our waste products in an effective way that will help reduce carbon emissions.

“Disposing of cooking oils can also be a difficult job whereas this new method is both convenient and economical.”
