McDonald's finds new use for oil

McDonald's has pledged to recycle its cooking oil by using it to run its delivery vehicles.

The fast-food chain has said it will convert all its 155 vehicles to run on bio-diesel by next year.

The fuel will be created by combining the company's cooking oil with rapeseed oil, which McDonald's claimed could save them more than 1,650t of carbon every year.

The company added it was also working on a range of other initiatives spanning recycling and packaging to reduce its carbon emissions.
