wat do u do w/ ur leftover cooking oils? throwing dem down d  drain s not a good idea since it will clog ur piping system sooner or later. throwing them in d trash?…. it can end up being used again by pple  selling cheap fried foods/snacks….re-using waste cooking oil have a serious health effect. it is now banned to re-use wco in thailand. they found out that poor pple are dying of colon cancer! tis poor pple are always buying cheap foods fried w/ wco. in d phils. when poor pple die, nobody care if they die of cancer or what. some pple believe dat evil spirits cause d death if it’s unexplained….d royal thai navy processes wco into bio-diesel. tis is one of d best way 2dispose wco (itz important 2note dat: rudolf diesel used peanut oil wen he invented d diesel engine, diesel fuel is not yet available then)

public utility vehicles in chiang mai benefits from the less pollution emitted by engines running on bio-diesel.

d by-product glycerin are being turned into soaps & other useful products…

at a smaller scale, one can recycle used cooking oil as raw material for soap making.

wco can also be screened/filtered on a cloth then place in a glass half-filled w/ sand & stones 2b used as a table lamp. those sitting in the table will feel romantic n hungry…imagine d candle emitting a fried chicken smell….good 4restaurants….
