In order to collect the waste oil, oil tanks will be installed in the parks, and filters will be installed in the apartments. After the price hikes in gasoline, biofuel can make the consumer smile. SCT will be refunded for biodiesel obtained from waste oils and oily plants and mixed with diesel fuel. A 2 percent limit will apply to returns. The Ministry of Environment and Urbanization will place “waste oil collection devices” in places such as markets, shopping centers and parks for citizens to collect vegetable waste oil, and the storage of waste oil from houses in apartments without reaching the sewer is among the projects.
The Ministry of Environment and Urbanization took action to prevent the environmental disaster caused by waste vegetable oils and to bring these oils back to the economy. Preparations for tax incentives for the recovery of waste vegetable oils were completed with the Ministry of Finance.
If it is determined by the decision of the Council of Ministers on the subject that auto biodiesel is sold by being mixed with diesel fuel by the distributors, 2 percent of the SCT previously paid for the biodiesel diesel will be returned to the distributors. In accordance with the regulation, if it is determined that 1000 liters of auto biodiesel obtained from vegetable waste oil is mixed in 20 liters of diesel fuel sold by distributors, the entire SCT paid for 1000 liters of biodiesel in 20 liters of auto biodiesel diesel will be returned. The return will only cover biodiesel from agricultural products produced in Turkey.
Collecting devices will be placed
The Ministry of Environment and Urbanization will place “waste oil collection devices” in places such as markets, shopping centers and parks for citizens to collect vegetable waste oil. In addition, with the evacuation system to be placed in new buildings within the scope of urban transformation, waste oils will accumulate in the warehouses.
With the regulation, products such as cotton, wheat, sunflower, soybean and canola will also be encouraged. Biodiesel producers have been waiting for a SCT reduction for a while to come to terms with fuel companies.
Separate installations for new buildings
In Turkey, nearly 400 thousand tons of waste vegetable oil is produced annually, only 3-4 percent of it can be collected. As the remaining oil mixes with the sewer, infrastructure costs are incurred. In addition to the tax problem, there is money required for vegetable oils in front of the spread of biodiesel. In this context, businesses that require large amounts of money for vegetable oil wastes, which should be given free of charge, will also be inspected.
The unregistered evaluation of waste oils also causes the concern of leaking number 10 oil. It is known that waste oils are converted to number 10 oil to be used as fuel. The Ministry will encourage the collection of oil from these enterprises, as well as those that encourage unregistered biofuels, and cooperate with municipalities.
A system that will allow apartments to store waste oil is also among the plans.
