Toronto-based Green Planet Bio-Fuels was founded in 2008 with the intention of recycling used cooking oil to be used as biofuels, rather then as animal feed, this way keeping spent fuel in fuel tanks rather in our livestock. Recycled cooking oil releases 80 to 90 percent less harmful emissions then fossil fuels.
