Advait to turn KFC’s used cooking oil to biodiesel
Advait, a newly established biofuel company, has signed a contract with Yum! Restaurants India, which operates KFC Taco Bell and Pizza Hut in the country, to collect used cooking oil (UCO) from KFC in the Andhra and Telangana region.
Advait will convert the collected product into biodiesel or export it to Europe for biodiesel processing.
The company is one of the major (UCO) collectors in India and currently collects oil from four South Indian states, and it aims to start collecting waste cooking oil throughout India with over 15 collection yards in major cities by the end of this year.
Advait has partnered with one of the largest biodiesel producers in India, Southern Online Bio Technologies, to supply UCO and market their biodiesel to various road transport organisations in India and abroad.
