Dubai Company Turns Used Cooking Oil to Biofuel

Lootah Biofuels, a Dubai-based company, is producing biodiesel from used cooking oil, introducing a fascinating new sustainable transportation solution.

This initiative results in a cost-effective, renewable, and environmentally friendly fuel alternative. The company has expanded its presence with fuel outlets across Dubai, with an annual production capacity of 60 million liters.

Yousif Bin Saeed Al Lootah conceptualized this project with the aim of making the UAE the first nation in the region to require biofuel blends at public fuel stations.

By offering payment for collected used cooking oil, Lootah Biofuels incentivizes providers such as restaurants, bakeries, and food chains, who contribute 500,000 liters of waste oil monthly.

Last year, the company converted this waste oil into 770 tons of biofuel.

According to the Lootah Biofuels website, used cooking oil boasts the highest carbon saving ratio among all biodiesel feedstocks, resulting in an estimated reduction of 500 million tons of CO2 emissions to date.
