About 20 million tons of waste cooking oil (WCO) are produced in China every year. The present method of converting WCO to biodiesel suffers from the problems of low economic efficiency and low product (quality). In fact, most of the WCO are illegally used for producing edible oil, which seriously harms the publish health. This project is aimed at utilizing WCO to produce high-quality biodiesel to facilitate an effective use of the waste and minimize the environmental effect.
