UAE welcomes the Biobot
Inspiring the green revolution with biodiesel
Taking a stance on sustainable energy, UAE-based group S.S. Lootah has announced it is to introduce a biodiesel processor which cuts the reaction and settling time in biodiesel production from hours to minutes.
A cooperation with UK-based company Practical Energy Solutions, the move comes after S.S. Lootah took home the 2011 Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport, earned for the efforts to fuel its heavy fleet on five per cent biodiesel.
Recycling the large quantities of cooking oil being wasted from food production in the UAE into biodiesel would have both environmental and economic benefit to the region, and Yousif Saeed Lootah, director of S.S. Lootah Group, is hopeful the move could help inspire regional industry to go green.
“As we move towards a sustainable future, introducing Biobot may help businesses and individuals to take those initial steps towards a green future, while inspiring them to take the leadership in the change process” says Mr Lootah. ”This product has the potential to be a key enabler in contributing towards reducing the carbon footprint”.
Speaking on the collaboration with S.S. Lootah Group, Colin Bolton, MD at Practical Energy Solutions, said: “We are pleased to share our knowledge and having pioneered many sustainable initiatives, we’re confident that S.S. Lootah is the right partner to introduce this product to the UAE.”
