Used cooking oil from Chick-fil-A restaurants will be used to make fuel, according to a press release from Darling Ingredients Inc, which noted that DAR PRO Solutions will fetch the oil from Chick-fil-A locations in America and Canada.

“At Chick-fil-A, we are committed to caring – and that includes caring for others through our food and caring for our planet,” vice president of corporate social responsibility for Chick-fil-A, Inc Rodney Bullard said, according to the news release. “Our innovative partnership with DAR PRO Solutions helps us be responsible stewards of the resources at our restaurants and allows us to support the future of renewable transportation fuel – all while positively influencing the communities we serve.”

The popular fast food chain serves up foods such as chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, and waffle fries. The restaurants are closed on Sundays.

“We admire Chick-fil-A’s commitment to reducing food waste and are proud to be part of a solution that keeps food waste out of our landfills while delivering a renewable fuel that reduces GHG emissions,” noted Sandra Dudley, Darling Ingredients Executive Vice President, Renewables and U.S. Specialty Operations.

The press release says that annually, “Darling Ingredients turns hundreds of millions of pounds of used cooking oil into renewable diesel through its Diamond Green Diesel venture. Diamond Green Diesel is estimated to produce more than 700 million gallons of renewable diesel in 2022.”

Diamond Green Diesel involves Darling Ingredients, as well as the Valero Energy Corporation, via a subsidiary, according to diamondgreendiesel.com.
