Biodiesel combined with gutter oil and diesel will be offered at nearly 200 gas stations in Shanghai by the end of the year, local authorities have said.

The biodiesel is 5 percent processed gutter oil and 95 percent diesel.

"Such biodiesel is now available in 21 pilot gas stations in Shanghai. More than 2,000 vehicles are now using this kind of biodiesel everyday," said Xu Kunlin, deputy mayor of Shanghai.

He said that there would be around 200 gas stations across the city providing biodiesel in 2018. A total of 30,000 tonnes of gutter oil, the annual volume of gutter oil that Shanghai produces, will all be recycled as biofuel.

Biodiesel tanks and fillers can be identified in gas stations, which also supply diesel and petrol.

The current price for the biodiesel is slightly cheaper than ordinary diesel. Sinopec Shanghai said the price for diesel in Shanghai was currently 6.49 yuan (1 US dollars) per liter and biodiesel was 6.19 yuan per liter.

The city's quality supervision departments said that based on their sampling inspections, all samples had met national standards. Drivers have said there is no big difference between using biodiesel and diesel.

Better still, Hainan Airlines used recycled oil to fly its plane to the US!

IN A bid to reduce international aviation emissions, Singapore Airlines has launched the world’s first “green package” flights powered in part by sustainable biofuel produced from used cooking oil.

The biofuel will be combined with the usual jet fuel in a series of 12 flights over the next three months on the Airbus A350-900, which the airline company hails as its “most fuel-efficient aircraft”, it said in a press release.

The 12 biofuel flights will be on the airline’s non-stop Singapore-San Francisco route.
