New tax could kill waste oil recycling

A UK waste oil recycling company is urging the Government to rethink its plans to introduce a tax on recycled fuel oil this November.The OSS Group uses waste lubricating oil, collected from garages and servicing centres, to produce a processed fuel oil (PFO), equivalent to virgin fuel oil and known as clean fuel oil. The firm estimates that 800,000 tonnes of waste oil is produced in the UK each year. The PFO is used in the shipping industry and the glass making process.
