Environment Agency issues waste-derived biofuel UK protocol

Environment Agency issues waste-derived biofuel UK protocol
The UK market for alternative fuels could be handed a boost by the establishment of a new quality protocol for biodiesel derived from waste cooking oil, it has been revealed.

Part of the Waste Protocols Projects - a joint scheme between the Environment Agency (EA) and the Waste & Resource Action Programme (WRAP) - the set of rules aims to clearly define the point at which waste becomes a fully recovered product.

By setting a standard point at which quality biodiesel derived from waste is no longer considered as a waste project itself, it is hoped that the quality protocol will encourage further production and trading.

This is because the rules are much more stringent for businesses dealing with materials that are considered waste products.

The protocol stated its intention to identify "the point at which waste, having been the subject of a complete recovery operation, may become a non-waste product or material that can be either reused by business or industry".

Companies dealing with biodiesel from waste will need to provide evidence of compliance with the protocol, including details of all input materials and production processes.
