Spanish researchers produce new biodiesel from low quality animal fats and soy oil

April 5, 2021 |

In Spain, researchers from the Higher Technical School of Mining Engineers of the Polytechnical University of Madrid (UPM), in collaboration with the ETS of Industrial Engineers of the University of Castilla-La Mancha, have produced a new biodiesel from mixtures of low quality animal fats and soybean oil.

The results obtained suggest that from these raw materials an acceptable biodiesel is produced, according to the standards, and with a lower final cost. The animal fats used are cheaper and constitute a fatty residue without any other use, which means that their transformation into biodiesel has environmental benefits and reduces dependence on other conventional agricultural raw materials.
