How Does Cooking Oil Conversion Work?

Oregon Oils, Inc. collects used cooking oil from restaurants and other businesses that use it to convert it into biodiesel fuel. Biodiesel fuel, or biofuel, can then be used as fuel for diesel engines. Biodiesel is a biodegradable fuel made from vegetable oil or animal fat. The cooking oils we collect are treated with alcohol, using a strong alkaline catalyst, which results in biodiesel. Biodiesel can be used as fuel in any compression-ignition engine that typically runs on diesel fuel. Turning used frying oil into biodiesel fuel instead of disposing of it in the traditional way has many benefits. Biofuel is biodegradable, keeps fuel systems clean, results in fewer emissions, and is cheaper than traditional diesel fuel.

How Does Collection Work and Why Should We Participate?

When your company participates in our free oil-recycling program, you can earn cash for your business. We’ll provide you with a receptacle to dump your used frying oil and schedule a collection time that’s convenient for you and your employees. On that scheduled time, our expert technicians will use a vacuum hose to empty the oil from your receptacle into our state-of-the-art vacuum trucks. Each truck is equipped with a meter that measures and records the amount of oil collected on each pick-up.

At the end of each quarter, we’ll send your company a rebate for the total quantity of oil received!

We have perfected the process to ensure that your collection area stays completely clean from drips and spills, so you can carry on with business as usual while we do our job in the background.
