Neutral Fuels converts used cooking oil into biodiesel, a sustainable replacement for fossil diesel.
When we entered the biodiesel industry in 2009 we found that it lacked straightforward working systems and had become too cumbersome to operate without government subsidies, creating price distortions that make sustainable fuel unviable. What’s more, few had mastered the most difficult aspect of biofuel production: a consistent feedstock supply to ensure the continuous processing of a consistently high quality end product.
Taking the customer as our starting point, we constructed clean, efficient working systems that would enable us to offer higher quality, higher yielding biodiesel produced at a profit and without subsidies.
In February 2012 Neutral Fuels, jointly with McDonald’s UAE, won the 2011 Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport in the Environmental Protection category from the Dubai Road and Transport Authority (RTA). In April 2012 our client, Keystone Foods/Allied Keystone Logistics (UAE), was named Planet Champion in the Logistics Category of McDonald’s Global Best of Green 2012 Awards and won a Best of the Best Award for our UAE biodiesel initiative.
Processing millions of liters of used cooking oil into biodiesel per annum, we symbolize the difference between fossil fuel and biofuel. Fossil fuel comes from ancient sources deep in the earth. Getting it out, processing it and using it is a destructive process. By contrast, there is nothing destructive about biofuel. It is fresh, modern, clean and sustainable. And while we don’t recommend it, you can even take a sip of our biodiesel without doing yourself any harm.
Neutral Fuels is a member of The Neutral Group, an international cleantech organization founded in 2006 to build sustainability strategies for the logistics, energy and hospitality industries and to execute significant reductions in energy spend and CO2 emissions.
We are headquartered in Dubai for easy access to the APMEA region (Asia Pacific/Middle East/Africa), where we are currently deploying new biorefineries. Neutral Fuels is the first licensed biorefinery in the UAE and we have offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South Africa.
