Dubai Becomes First City to Fuel Municipal Vehicles on 100% Local Waste Cooking Oil

February 19, 2015

DubaiDubai is to become the first city in the world to formally adopt biodiesel made 100% locally from 100% waste cooking oil for use in its municipal vehicles.

This follows the signing of a deal between the Municipality and Neutral Fuels LLC to replace diesel in its vehicles with clean biodiesel. This biodiesel does not require any engine modifications on diesel vehicles.

Karl W Feilder, CEO & Chairman of Neutral Fuels (right), said: “This is a fantastic day for the UAE, for Dubai and for biodiesel. The Municipality is creating a sustainability benchmark which the rest of the world should note. We are proud to be part of the UAE’s bold vision for a sustainable future, and applaud the Municipality for making such a strategic move.”
