Germany consumed more UCO biodiesel last year than RME

November 6, 2017 from Biodiesel Magazine

Germany’s Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) has said that "for the first time, consumption of biodiesel from used cooking oil (UCO) in Germany exceeded that of rapeseed biodiesel (RME). The total consumption of waste oil biodiesel in 2016 was approximately 868,000 metric tons (more than 260 million gallons) while use of rapeseed biodiesel topped off at 860,000 tons."

Ed. note: Biodiesel is produced from waste cooking oils and is traife. A bi-product is glycerin which may end up being used in foods.
