Sustainable development with Gastrofilter

Sustainable development is based on three basic pillars: the social, economic and environmental pillar, which must be managed complexly taking into account its interactions. These systems are not of the same degree, but are embedded in each other. The economy represents the subsystem of society, and society that of the ecosystem. Based on this, it is obvious that ecological sustainability is essential because it defines society and within it the economy as well.

Sustainable development can be achieved in practice if we harmonize economic, social and environmental protection interests. The activity of our company aims, first of all, at ecosystems. By collecting waste, on the one hand, we prevent their accumulation and their negative effect on the environment, on the other hand, by valorizing them, we help the production of bioenergy carriers.

The oils of vegetable origin, collected by our company, have a harmful effect on the environment, because they clog the waste water drainage channels. One liter of frying oil contaminates 1000 liters of water, also containing carcinogenic substances. The use of biodiesel made from vegetable oil, cleaned at the end of the process of valorization of vegetable oils, is much more beneficial than that of petroleum, considering the fact that the formation of the latter is the result of millions of years, while the raw materials of biodiesel - is realized through relatively fast biological processes.

Summarizing all this, it can be said that our activity frees our environment from a large amount of harmful substances and favors the production of green energy.

You may be wondering, why should used cooking oil be recycled. Before looking at those benefits that might help you make the decision to recycle, let's take a closer look at the final product that results from recycling used vegetable oil. BIODIESEL is a clean burning fuel that is formed by recycling vegetable oil. cooked by a chemical process. Biodiesel is mixed with diesel. This blend consists of pure biodiesel mixed with petroleum diesel in various concentrations.
The positive effects of bio-diesel are of two types. The main benefits are in the economic and environmental fields.

Environmental benefits: There are several positive aspects of using bio-diesel instead of fossil fuels:
Renewal capacity: Biodiesel is a product with renewable resources (used vegetable oil) while fossil fuels are largely dependent on non-renewable resources. Therefore, bio-diesel is a much better alternative from the point of view of the sustainability of the resource itself.
Burning without contamination: Fossil fuels are known to emit harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, which help increase greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4, etc.) and are major factors in climate change.
Diversify waste: Instead of throwing away used vegetable oil, we can deposit it in waste collection centers, where it can be recycled, to create an alternative energy source.

Economic benefits: There are several ways in which businesses and the economy can benefit from using bio-diesel oils and recycling waste:
Local businesses: Biodiesel can be produced locally and has the potential to provide local economies with a new market for their products and waste.
Job creation: If biodiesel can be incorporated into the energy sector, it will encourage new business opportunities, investment and employment.
Individual businesses: the possibility of partnering with a waste oil collection company such as GASTROFILTER can provide economic benefits to businesses with a low revenue stream by paying for the collection of used vegetable oil.

Although not a commonly used transportation fuel, it promises to be a viable alternative given the pressures of rising oil prices and the need for a sustainable environment. By using biodiesel and recycling used vegetable oils, companies can see the above benefits and increase the sustainability of their practices while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

We believe that waste can be used as a resource.
By paying companies, people and organizations to collect used vegetable oil, we hope to encourage the recovery, recycling and reuse of these materials.
