 Project objective

Biodiesel is an environment-friendly fuel with clear and substantial advantages over conventional diesel, but even at full production it could only ever meet around 8% of the diesel market. Currently, 95% of the world biodiesel is produced from high-grade feedstock such as rapeseed, sunflower oil, and soybean oil (high-grade feedstock). This led to major environmental problems such as serious destruction of vital soil resources, deforestation and large usage of the available arable land. The negative effects of high-grade feedstock use in biodiesel production resulted in their exclusion from REDII - the proposed new EU mandate that caps high-grade feedstock biodiesel blending at 3.8% by 2030. In order to meet REDII’s minimum 6.8% blend from alternative feedstocks, the industry needs to produces biofuel such as biodiesel from secondgrade feedstocks, which has technical issues using current production methods. TransBiodiesel Ltd. has patented TransZyme A, an immobilized enzyme technology for the production of biodiesel using any grade feedstocks (FFAs 0– 100%). Its main features are its tolerance to high concentrations of methanol and water and its long-term operational lifetime, which makes its use economically viable for biodiesel production. This innovative enzyme uses a unique continuous production method, which is more cost effective than current chemical production methods. The Usewaste project aims to leverage this innovation by creating a pre-industrial mobile, continuous enzymatic biodiesel production process on the sites of low-grade feedstock by-product producers. Usewaste mobile lab will be used by the Company to showcase their innovation and eventually foster first commercial partnerships. The company aims to put the biodiesel industry back on track.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "USEWASTE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
