A network of production and distribution of gutter oil, made out of restaurants' leftover oil and sewer water, which was established in Zhejiang province has been brought to the news already in March 2011. At present, 32 suspects were arrested for forming this network, which sold the produced gutter oil to several other provinces.
The 'small case' of gutter oil actually concerns the life of hundreds of millions of people. According to what is understood, gutter oil brings about severe harm to the human body, from as little as abdominal pains and diarrhea up to cancer (when eating for a long period of time)! This time it took 4 months for the Ministry of Public Security (or the police) to destroy the huge 'gutter oil industry chain', arresting 32 suspects, while detaining more than a 100 tons of gutter oil leftovers.
The case goes back to March this year, as the police body of Ninghai, Zhejiang, discovered some people utilize food leftovers, frying with used oil and sewage water, refining gutter oil. Reporters followed the Ninghai police to the gutter oil refining 'nest'.
In the past few days, the police unfolded and seized the 'Gelin Shengwu Nengyuan Youxiang Gongsi' business in Jinan, Shandong, arresting 32 criminal suspects.
Reporters have interviewed these suspects one by one. According to what reporters understand, the gutter oil costs 5000 yuan per ton, which was sold to businesses in Jiangsu and Shandong. This time, the Shandong business was the Jinan company 'Gelin Shengwu Nengyuan Youxiang Gongsi'.
