The potential of used cooking oil as a feedstock for biodiesel production for Eilat’s public transportation
This paper summarizes the biodiesel production capacities and the used cooking oil-based feedstock potential of Eilat for the first time. Israel’s transportation sector is currently dependent on petroleum-based vehicles that pollute the environment and threaten public health.
This study analyzes low-emission fuel alternative biodiesel for potential use in Eilat’s public transportation. Calculations had been made in order to determine the current energy demand based on bus route length, determining the amount of waste oil needed to meet this requirement.
Results show that the restaurants’ sector can provide used cooking oil for the production of 220,000 liters of biodiesel annually.
These results show that the use of used cooking oil as a feedstock can generate enough biodiesel to meet the fuel demand of the public transportation in Eilat.
