Motion text

That this House notes that used cooking oil is a common waste product that is damaging to the environment and difficult to dispose of; recognises the potential for recycling used cooking oil into a fuel to produce carbon neutral electricity; welcomes the contribution this could make to meeting the Government's carbon emission reduction targets; is therefore disappointed that there has been no final decision on whether used cooking oil should be considered a fuel product or a waste product; further notes that this uncertainty is a major disincentive to companies trying to produce such clean and renewable fuels; and calls on the Government to seek swift resolution to these problems in order to encourage such innovation.
