In China, Yum China Holdings, Inc. announced on May 13, 2019 that it is the first restaurant company in China to get the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) certification for its used cooking oil that will be converted into sustainable biodiesel following a successful pilot project in Chengdu.
Yum China launched its first biodiesel conversion pilot project in Chengdu in October 2018 to ensure that all used cooking oil at Company-owned KFC restaurants in the city is successfully converted into biodiesel. In accordance with the ISCC certification process, Yum China has established a comprehensive data recording and tracking system with local partners covering those KFC restaurants, waste collection companies, used oil storage sites and biodiesel plants. The system records information concerning used oil at every stage of the conversion process. In the future, Yum China plans to selectively roll out the biodiesel conversion initiative nationwide.
