The damages caused by high-in trans fat food are no longer limited to an individual's health, but now it damages the environment as well. Over 80,000 gallons is the estimated daily amount of F.O.G.(fat, oil, and grease) waste produced by kitchens in Dubai (Baldwin, 2018). The rise of the waste volume has negatively affected both the economy and the environment. Similarly to heart blockage, having these types of waste can cause serious medical, environmental, and economic issues in the long term. Blue is a joint venture that was established between Envirol and Dubai Municipality in 1991. Blue is known as the pioneer of Sustainable and Environmental Solutions targeting the root cause of F.O.G. waste (Fats, Oils & Grease) and its environmental impact in the middle east, and it is the owner of the only treatment plant in the middle east which recycles this waste into water, and compost. Also, it refines oil that is used for soap manufacturing and the production of biodiesel, along with multiple energy-saving products and waste management facilities. The environment is Blue's biggest business priority which is the the key behind their successes since the launch.
