Used cooking oil from private households

Used cooking oil from private households

Every drop counts:
We make your used cooking oil mobile and convert it into bio-fuel.

Sustainability is the DNA of Altfettrecycing Lesch. With decades of experience in the collection and processing of used cooking oil from the catering trade, it is time for the next step: The collection of used cooking oil in private households.

With the participation of the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt DBU and the Mittelstandsverband abfallbasierte Kraftstoffe MVaK, we have developed and tested a continuous collection system as part of a pilot project that enables the effective collection of this previously wasted resource.

The easy-to-use collection system makes it easy for all citizens to collect and convert the cooking oils you use into sustainable fuel.

Since November 2018, citizens of Erlangen, Fürth and the district of Roth have been able to collect the edible fats they have used and give them to our “Every drop counts” collection machine.

You can find out how our collection system works here.
