The environmental impact of wasted vegetable cooking oils in numbers
Water and oil consumptionIn five days, a European citizen consumes an average of 1.000 L of water. On the other hand, for every 1L of wasted vegetable cooking oil, that is not properly recycled, it pollutes 1.000.000 L of water.
environmental contaminationIn 90% of cases, the wasted cooking oil is poured into the sink. In contact with water, it forms a layer at the top that prevents the absorption of oxygen and sunlight by marine life. It is also difficult to eliminate in the pipelines, causing clogging and, above all, a problem in cleaning the waste water, which is therefore one of the main causes of water contamination.
Worldwide consequencesIn one year, over 60.000 million tons of vegetable oils are consumed worldwide. Almost half generate waste in quantities that, for example, can alter the original properties of waters across the Baltic Sea.
