A Proposed Alternative Suggestion for the Disposal of Used Cooking Oil

Abstract:
The control of over-used cooking oil presents a number of problems. Not only are there health issues to consider, the assessment of the degree of degradation also requires tedious and laborious chemical analysis procedures. Once the degree of degradation is established, the disposal or recycling of the used cooking oil presents another huge dilemma. This research note proposes a fast and relatively easy infrared spectroscopic method to measure the amount of waste products formed in the cooking oil as a result of degradation during its use and re-use. It also offers an economic and environmentally sound proposal for its disposal, which can be applied universally all over the world.
