Eco Kos is licensed company for collection, collection, storage and physical treatment of oils and fats with no. of KEM: 20 01 25. Our professional team at the Waste Management Department is fully dedicated to providing eco services to every used cooking oil producers such as restaurants, hotels, food service companies, supermarkets, industrial food producers and businesses that use vegetable cooking oils in food preparation.
Used cooking oil (UCO) is produced in large quantities by food industries and households every day. Due to inadequate disposal of this type of waste, it is the most common polluter of water and soil, accounting for ¼ of all pollution categories. Following the international practices of green circular economy, in 2018 Eco Kos L.L.C introduced an innovative waste management system – collection, transportation, storage and treatment of used cooking oils and fats of vegetable origin (Waste code 20 01 25 – List of waste types published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Kosovo, no. 17/2012). As pioneers in this industry, we have established an efficient and functional system for used cooking oil management over the entire territory of Kosovo. By using modern technology, highly developed logistics network and continued education of every used cooking oil producer, our system guarantees further utilization of the energy potential of UCO – as feedstock for production of renewable energy (biofuels). With this circular, green energy business model we contribute to the completion of environmental and climate change goals at EU level.
