Report Digest


Waste oils and fats are the type of any kind of synthetic or petroleum-based oils and fats that have never been put to use due to its compromised quality, often due to contamination. Waste oils and fats are considered unsuitable for their desired end-use or original purpose due to their lower quality or loss of their original characteristics or presence of impurities.

Waste oils and fats are technically different from used oils and fats, however, both used and waste oils and fats can be used in the production of bioenergy fuels. Waste oils and fats are considered hazardous waste and players in the waste oils and fats market collect them separately to carry of further distillation processes on them. Players in the waste oils and fats market need to treat waste oils and fats as per the guidelines developed by governing bodies before using them in different applications.

Governmental organizations and environmental organization, including the United States Environment Protection Agency and the European Commission, have developed rules and regulations to guide waste oils and fats market players to follow appropriate treatments and procedures. Players in the waste oils and fats market need to ensure the compliance with regulations in different geographical regions to envisage positive growth in the respective regional waste oils and fats market and avail long-term benefits.

Waste Oils and Fats Market Dynamics

Benefits of Waste Oils and Fats in Production of Biofuels will Boost Waste Oils and Fats Market Growth

With the ever-growing demand for energy and fuels, a majority of governments are promoting the use of biofuels. Meanwhile, recycled waste oils and fats find applications in the production of bioenergy, which makes them one of the preliminary feedstock for the production of bioenergy. Utilization of waste oils and fats in the production of biofuels can help bioenergy industry players to mitigate their production costs. Thereby, increasing popularity of recycled waste oils and fats as a main raw material in the production of biofuels is expected to boost growth of the waste oils and fats market.

Asia’s used cooking oil industry has been witnessing flourishing growth since the past few years as a mounting number of biofuel plants situated in the region are creating high demand for waste oils and fats. Furthermore, the ever-tightening and aggressive green energy regulations in Europe are bolstering demand for biofuels manufactured using waste oils and fats.

This has unleashed the wave of exports of biofuels produced with used cooking oil from Asia to developed regions, including Europe. With the recent developments in the cost-effective biofuel manufacturing processes using used cooking oils and other types of waste oils and fats, the Asian region is expected to prove highly lucrative for players in the waste oils and fats market.

Waste Oils and Fats Market Players Adopt High-tech Manufacturing Processes to Reduce Production Cost

The waste oils and fats market is witnessing positive growth across the world, and leading players in the waste oils and fats market are focusing on modifying their manufacturing strategies to improve the quality and reduce cost of end product.
