BioD Group commission’s UAE’s largest biodiesel refinery

September 7, 2021 |

In the UAE, in line with the UAE’s latest initiative ”Operation 300 Billion. Make it in the UAE”, BioD has announced the commissioning of a biodiesel refinery in Dubai, Jebel-Ali Free Zone. 

The 30,000 metric ton per annum capacity refinery here is the second plant of the BioD group. The first, similar operation, started in Northern India in early 2019. The technology is of 2nd generation bio-refining, where FAME Biodiesel can be produced based on waste and residues, rather than vegetable oils only.

The feedstock used are 100% non-human consumption residues, such as UCO (Used Cooking Oil), animal tallow, POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent Waste) and acid oils, such as grease tap collection. To reduce the carbon footprint in logistics, the aim is to source the raw materials as close to the plant as possible.

The operation meets stringent quality standards to ensure that the final product, biodiesel, meets the global carbon reduction requirements. BioD Technologies is ISCC International Sustainability and Carbon Certification certified, audited by SGS, to meet Renewable Energy Directive of the European Union criteria.
