Eleven suspects involved in refining and selling gutter oil stood trial in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province, on Tuesday.

The 11 suspects are alleged to be part of a large group that is recycling used kitchen oil, often retrieved from gutters and sewers, and reselling it as edible oil.

The court didn't pronounce a verdict in the case.

Ningbo Intermediate People's Court tried nine people from the same group last week, including the alleged group leader, Liu Liguo. Altogether, 20 people have been charged for their alleged participation in the network, which police say runs from Zhejiang to Shandong and Henan provinces.

Police in Ningbo first discovered the network in March 2011, after they detained a man surnamed Huang who salvaged gutter oil in the city. Arrested later was Liu Liguo, head of two companies in Shandong province, who police said had been buying gutter oil from Huang.

Police then discovered a number of food and cooking-oil distributors who bought recycled oil from Liu and resold it.
