Czech company becomes first to produce biofuels from waste cooking oil in the country : Biofuels Digest


In the Czech Republic, Chemoprojekt is launching production of biodiesel made from waste frying oil and will be the first company in the country to do so, according to the daily Hospodářské noviny.

“We expect to launch the production of biofuels from waste cooking oil at the end of September or beginning of October. The capacity of the production line will be between 6,000 to 8,000 tonnes a month, based on the quality of the raw material,” Radomír Kučera told the daily, adding that the company will use only plant oils and not animal fats.

Chemoprojekt, which is part of the Safichem group, was the first company in the Czech Republic to introduce production of biofuels from rapeseed oil. The company said it recently decided to switch from rapeseed oil to waste frying oil and has already invested several dozen million crowns into the project.

“We are currently transforming the unit from rapeseed oil into waste cooking oil because we believe the second-generation biofuels have a more promising future,” Radomír Kučera said.
