Demonstration of new, challenging and high FFA waste oil and fat feedstock in biodiesel process with improved costs, conversion and high fuel quality

BIODIE2020 will recover unconventional, degraded waste oils & fats, notably from Water Company infrastructures, and demonstrate the conversion of these wastes as a sustainable feedstock for biodiesel production. This break-through & beneficial pathway will maximise the use of waste oils & fats on a large scale for the 1st time on the biodiesel market, leading to lower transport carbon emissions.

Quantis will assess the environmental performance of the investigated novel technologies and products, compared to reference conventional technologies, by means of a life cycle assessment (LCA).
