As a renewable source of energy and a greener alternative to petroleum diesel, biofuel significantly reduces the emission of harmful greenhouse gases and particulate emissions that causes air pollution.

Since it is made from recycled cooking oil, its production ensures that cooking fat, oil and grease (FOG) waste is diverted from landfills and sewerage pipes to improve the quality of air and water. According to recent global statistics, nearly 1 billion gallons of biodiesel is produced per annum.

Realising the value of recycling used cooking oil and its impact in lowering carbon footprints, Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities, environment and energy management solutions in the GCC, has collaborated with Blue, the new identity of Alserkal Group’s Environmental Division, for the management of used cooking oil collection. Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, and Ahmad Bin Eisa Bin Nasser Alserkal, Chairman of Alserkal Group, have signed a contract for the proper collection and recycling of used cooking oil.

Under the scope of the agreement, Imdaad will collect used cooking oil from the clients of Alserkal Group, including restaurants and hotels in upscale locations in Dubai such as Box Park and Jumeirah Beach Residences, among others. The collection and treatment of used cooking oil will aid in curbing the illegal disposal or sale of organic waste, thereby reinforcing the guidelines set by the Dubai Municipality to preserve the environment. 

Lootah said: “Imdaad’s strategic partnership with Blue comes at an opportune time when various public and private entities are taking up recycling of used cooking oil for conversion to biodiesel as a priority. We are delighted to collaborate with market pioneers such as Alserkal in collecting, transporting and disposing of used cooking oil in line with the highest international standards to ensure that used cooking oil is neither reused nor thrown into drains. The move also demonstrates Imdaad’s proactive measures to keep the environment green, healthy and sustainable for present and future generations.”

“As part of its strategies for environmental sustainability, the UAE continues to put strong emphasis on recycling of used cooking oil. As the market leader in environmental and waste management, Alserkal complements government plans to offer cutting-edge solutions in FOG waste such as setting up the region’s only edible oil recovery plant. Our partnership with Imdaad is a major step in this direction as they will aid in the collection and recycling of waste edible oil which can be converted to biofuel,” concluded Alserkal.

As per the Dubai Municipality regulation, all food processing companies are required to install grease traps in their kitchens to avoid disposing oil and grease in sewage treatment plants. The FOG waste is transported to a recycling plant which processes the waste and separates it into reusable components. Vegetable oil is used for the production of soap, biodiesel and oil burners, while bio-solids are recycled as fertilizer and the water is utilized for irrigation.
