About 350 MOL petrol stations will be able to dispose of used grease in an environmentally friendly way by pouring it into a closed container, the Hungarian oil and gas company announced.
The waste is used to produce biodiesel at Rossi Biofuel’s plant in Komárom, which MOL uses to produce more sustainable diesel to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. In line with the company’s strategy of focusing on the circular economy, used cooking oil will be recycled into an environmentally friendly product instead of environmentally harmful waste.
In the last 11 years, a total of 2,888 tons of used cooking oil has been collected at the Hungarian petrol stations during the take-back campaign.
The MOL stations, where the oil of up to 10 liters, not mixed with other waste or chemicals, can be delivered to the staff in any container, can be found in the filling station locator on the company’s website or in the free Mol Move app, the company revealed.
MOL Group is a leading integrated Central Eastern European oil and gas corporation headquartered in Budapest, Hungary. MOL’s exploration and production activities are supported by 80 years’ experience in the hydrocarbon field. Since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, and the resulting energy crisis, the Hungarian company has put an even bigger emphasis on searching for natural gas and crude oil in Hungary. As a result, most recently, MOL has drilled three successful shallow gas wells in eastern Hungary in the past three months, resulting in the discovery of natural gas. The amount found could meet the gas needs of up to 20,000 average family homes for a few years.
