Oil, in our everyday lives is very helpful. It helps us cook our food. Oil, as you’ve heard on the news has had its shortage with the amount of oil that is used every day, and with the millions of people using it three times a day. Correct me if I’m wrong but right after you’ve cooked your food.

Place your used cooking oil in a jar or container. Take your plastic and put the fork inside and then you start making holes in the bottom part of the plastic. Get your cup and put your plastic inside the cup. Put some tissue paper on top of the plastic and also make sure that it is secure. Slowly, start placing your used cooking oil in the cup. It will soon start to filter and it might take a while.

After like half an hour or so, remove the plastic and the tissue. Clean out your jar or container (which you used in storing the used one) and pour the oil from the glass to the jar or container. Then, you will see that this time the oil is much clearer and cleaner. If you want clearer oil, repeat the process the 2nd time. Repeating the process the 2nd time around is highly encouraged.
We conclude that you could and can purify used cooking oil and that it is not impossible to do and very easy. It can be reused in cooking again and again as long as you know how.

This study is important for It also lets people be aware of OIL. And how we just not recognize them and not realize that the oils that we dispose is causing water pollution. Society WILL benefit from this project. In a way, we are teaching them on how you could reuse and recycle your already used cooking oil without spending loads of money every other day to buy a new bottle.

There’s always that small amount or sometimes large amount oil, some of us tend to put it in the drain, just wasting it but what some of us don’t know is that, when we throw our oil in the drain it connects to the canal which connects to the sea. So, in a way we are somewhat causing water pollution. That is why we chose this project. We want to be of help in every single way that we can. To be aware of the little thing that we are doing are causing terrible things.
We went online, and it said that you could purify used cooking oil. The article said that if we reuse our cooking oil, and use it over and over again, we would not only be saving money, but also it benefits our environment , for because people do not know how to dispose of oil correctly.
Our project goal would be to research methods of filtration or purification and test it on cooking oils. To easily demonstrate which method works best, to try cooking some food in the oil produced by each one. For me, it is a very useful and eco-friendly project that can benefit both the environment and also, our pockets
To be able to prove that you can purify cooking oil.
To reuse and recycle used cooking oil
Cooking oil is plant, animal, or synthetic fat used in frying, baking, and other types of cooking. It is also used in food preparation and flavoring that doesn't involve heat, such as salad dressings and bread dips, and in this sense might be more accurately termed edible oil. Cooking oil is typically a liquid at room temperature, although some oils that contain saturated fat, such as coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil are solid. Oil used in cooking foods is commonly derived from vegetables. Cooking oil is commonly used for frying. Oil used for frying is usually thrown away.
