Also has worked with Science Festival 2008 to create a social consciousness to the properly recovery of used oil.

Today, 180 million tons of vegetable oil per year are emptied into sewers and discharged into the environment. The annual oil consumption in Italy is 1.4 billion tons, equal to 25 kg / year per person. The average duration of the cycle of food processing exhausted oil into biodiesel is about 24 hours. Management of such oils and fats pose a significant challenge because of their disposal problems and possible contamination of the water and land resources.
