Through this programme, students learn how used cooking oil can be transformed into biodiesel, and schools gain resources for environmental education and support of their environmental infrastructure, for the benefit of students all over Cyprus. At the same time, through the programme, green jobs are promoted and young, unemployed scientists are recruited. After being informed and more aware, citizens actively participate in transforming a very harmful waste, such as used cooking oil, which can destroy aquifers, pollute the ground, and clog pipes and the sewerage system, into a fuel, and promote development and progress. The goal is that ‘Tiganokinisi’ becomes part of the citizens’ everyday life.
