It’s true that biodiesel can be made from recycled cooking oils, as well as soybean oil and animal fats. However, a refining process called transesterification converts these oils and fats into fuel-grade biodiesel that meets industry specifications. Don’t confuse raw fats and oils with high quality biodiesel fuel.
