Ho Chi Minh city officials will soon start collecting used vegetable oil and animal fat from hotels and restaurants in the city to turn into biodiesel. Since diesel oil makes up half of the petroleum products used in Viet Nam, according to this story from the Viet Nam News, replacing some with biodiesel could have a major impact on reducing fossil fuel needs. Currently, most of the used oil and fat in HCM City is thrown into the trash or dumped into the sewage systems. Scientists from HCM City's Polytechnique University are helping with the project, which also aims to collect waste greases from factories that process foodstuffs. The end result will likely be B20.
