Waste oil processing site in Sanya suspected of producing illegal cooking oil
According to Mr. Tang, one of the villagers, the discarded oil processing site, with ground scattered with dirt barrens, sewage and a lot of grease, has been operating for a long time since last year.
"Sometimes the air is filled with unpleasant smell when they are refining the waste oil," Mr. Tang complained.
In order to identify the use of this refining oil, the relevant authorities have carried out an inspection on the processing site.
According to the owner, they have obtained some relevant operating licenses for the oil refining operation. Their work is to collect and refine some waste oil together and then ship them to Guangdong to be processed into industrial oil. He also pointed out that this waste oil will not be used for the recycled cooking oil.
However, local authorities said if much attention hasn’t been paid to the environmental protection in the oil refining process, the oil refining will lead to another secondary pollution.
