KFC India will reprocess its used cooking oil into biodiesel


Pilot project is for all properties in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana.

Yum! has signed an agreement with Dutch company Advait BV to collect its used cooking oil (UCO) from all its KFC outlets  in the Andhra and Telangana regions.

Advait will convert the UCO into biodiesel or export the feedstock for biodiesel processing in Europe. It currently collects UCO in four South Indian states.

The Dutch company aims to start collecting UCO throughout India with more than 15 collection yards in major cities by the end of this year.

It has also partnered with Southern Online Bio Technologies Ltd., a large scale biodiesel producer in India, to supply UCO to it and market its biodiesel in India and abroad. The biodiesel made will be sold to various road transport organizations in India.
