In the project Waste Cooking Oil (WCO) into Bio-Diesel, KWA aims to make use of the waste cooking oil from all over Kuwait in an efficient, cost effective and ecofriendly way to produce Bio-diesel. Waste oil is otherwise dumped into sinks of homes and restaurants and in water sources which causes blockages in sewage pipes as well as extreme contamination of water. Biodiesel is a combustible fuel that is biodegradable and made from vegetable oil or animal fat. More specifically, biodiesel is defined as an oxygenated, non-toxic, and eco-friendly alternative diesel oil. Through research and techniques being used in other countries, KWA will be using advanced methodologies for this process of successful conversion of waste oil to Bio-diesel. This project helps the environment in the following ways:
Helps create a proper disposal system for waste oil which reduces pollution and contamination of water resources.
Helps create an efficient method to produce an eco-friendly fuel which will induce cleaner air with less hydrocarbon emissions
