Tadweer, the Abu Dhabi centre of waste management, and the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology have completed 75% of a waste cooking oil to Biodiesel recycling project.
The initiative is in accordance with the Emirates Science, Technology and Innovation Higher Policy adopted by the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The project’s emphasis is on achieving fundamental improvement of the process of converting waste cooking oil to biodiesel through experimentation and modelling studies that help in making the conversion an effective and efficient process and provides a biofuel that can be fully utilised.
This initiative also aims to promote recycling and reuse and provide the methods needed by the community to facilitate proper disposal of waste.
The project consists of a two-year research agreement with Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, seeking to improve the process of producing biodiesel from waste cooking oil.
Tadweer will be extending the pilot plant scale project across Abu Dhabi, especially to the areas surrounding the current location, such as Khalifa A according to the results attained in the next phase in order encourage the communities to support such green technologies.
Based on Tadweer's strategy, the initiative aims to integrate sustainable waste management practices in the daily lives of people, such as waste reduction at source, re-use and recycling.
