|EPA (Taiwan) to Tighten Rules on Waste Cooking Oil Export|
7 January 2015
|The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) has announced that it is set to mend a leak in existing regulations governing waste oil management and ban the export of waste cooking oil collected without government permission from homes and food stands.|
Existing regulations strictly stipulate the way waste cooking oil produced at restaurants, fast food chains and food processing companies can be handled, but fail to address similar waste from homes and food stands.
As a result, recyclers of cooking oil from these sources are able to sell waste oil overseas without any permits.
