BioDiesel

Where is Aris BioEnergy’s biodiesel plant located?

Aris BioEnergy collects UCO from thousands of eateries, hotels, restaurants across the cities and provides it to BioDiesel refineries listed under the RUCO project. Please refer to the RUCO website for more details.

Does biodiesel affect fuel consumption?

Studies show that biodiesel-powered engines have torque and horsepower when compared to diesel-powered engines. Interestingly, the study also reveals that Biodiesel has a higher cetane rating that helps reduce smoke emissions and reduces your carbon footprint.

Can BioDiesel be used in vehicles?

Yes!

As most modern diesel engines are warranted to run on anywhere between B5 (5% biodiesel) to B20 (20% biodiesel) without any modification, using BioFuel in vehicles is efficient and convenient.

Is BioDiesel good for the environment?

Yes. Biodiesel is an alternative to fossil fuels. It further reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs), reduces several major air pollutants, and has minimal impact on human and environmental health.

What are the benefits of using biodiesel?

Biodiesel has a plethora of advantages –

  • Produced from renewable resources
  • Is biodegradable and non-toxic fuel
  • Aids in foreign exchange
  • Betters nation’s fuel economy
  • Generated 90% lesser emissions compared to conventional Diesel
  • Positive impact on the economics of the country
  • Helps to create green jobs and opportunities
  • Builds energy security for the country

What is BioDiesel?

Biodiesel is an alternative fuel to conventional diesel. It is a renewable and clean-burning fuel produced from resources like vegetable oil, used cooking oil, animal fat, or agricultural oil. Biodiesel is free of sulfur and aromatics and therefore, 85% less polluting than other forms of fuels. It is simple to use, biodegradable, and non-toxic.



Used Cooking Oil (UCO)

Why is the conversion of Used Cooking Oil to BioDiesel a necessity?

When Used Cooking Oil converts to BioDiesel, it helps in reducing dependence on imported diesel while creating green jobs for the youth, improves our environment and also, paves a path to sustainable living for all.

How to discard Used Cooking Oil (UCO) correctly?

The Used Cooking Oil (UCO) in India is often recklessly poured down kitchen sinks resulting in clogging of drains, pollution of open water bodies like lakes/ponds, and endangerment of marine life.

Follow these steps;

  • Begin by storing the leftover oil carefully in a closed jar/container provided by Aris BioEnergy and place it in a cool, dry, and safe place to avoid any spills or leaks.
  • Do not place it near any heating agent or appliances like an oven, gas, or fridge.
  • Once you have collected large amounts of leftover cooking oil, contact Aris BioEnergy to collect UCOs. We will happily process your UCOs into BioFuel.

How to test if your Used Cooking Oil has become rancid?

If you have used the same cooking oil before, sniff it before reusing it. If the oil smells off or unusual it has gone rancid. If you are still unsure, heat a few drops of the oil and take a whiff.

Another way to test is by checking the color of your UCO. The darker the color of your oil, the more rancid and unhealthy it becomes.

DO NOT use oil that smells weird or turned dark brown or even black in color.

Why is Used Cooking Oil (UCO) unhealthy to consume?

Any cooking oil, if used or heated again and again changes its chemical composition and makes it carcinogenic (particulates that cause cancer).

Furthermore, reheating cooking oil deteriorates its quality resulting in various health issues like obesity, gastric problems, which can cause stroke, and even affect the liver.

What can be categorized as Used Cooking Oil (UCO)?

When any kind of cooking oil is heated twice, it can be categorized as used cooking oil. Such cooking oil is harmful to our health. It must be contributed to generate biodiesel.
