Lebanese researchers team with UNDP on pilot biodiesel plant

August 9, 2018 |

In Lebanon, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) and IPT Energy Center (IPTEC), with the support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Lebanon, signed an MOU to install a pilot plant for the production of biodiesel from Waste Cooking Oil.

The main objective of this project is to encourage and promote sustainable biodiesel production from WCO by collecting household WCO in storage tanks available at key IPT gas stations and at the USEK university campus, and processing it into biodiesel in a pilot plant installed at the USEK campus.

The quantity of biodiesel produced will be equally shared between USEK and IPTEC. USEK’s share will be mixed with the green diesel currently used in the university generators, while IPTEC’s share will be sold at selective IPT gas stations for commercial use.
