Deal to reduce carbon emissions of its transport fleet
Leading UAE-based smart and green facilities management (FM) company Farnek has signed a partnership agreement with Dubai headquartered Neutral Fuels to reduce the amount of carbon emissions generated by its transport fleet, it was announced in a press communique.
Farnek has made a commitment to transition to Neutral Fuels’ B7 blend biodiesel which saves 6.14% of carbon emissions in comparison to using regular diesel. So, for every 100,000 litres of B7 biodiesel used there is a saving of 21,170kgs of carbon dioxide.
“It is not feasible for many companies with hundreds of vehicles, travelling thousands of kilometres a day, to replace their transport fleet with electric vehicles. Biofuel is a cost-effective and sustainable alternative,” remarked Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek.
Neutral Fuels, which is the largest producer of biofuel in the Gulf region, collects waste cooking oil from local restaurants and kitchens and chemically transforms it into Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (commonly called biodiesel).
Neutral Fuels biodiesel is a clean, green renewable fuel which immediately and significantly reduces transport carbon emissions without any engine modifications enabling organizations to reduce their contribution to climate change.
“Our partnership reflects the commitment of both Neutral Fuels and Farnek towards sustainable business practices. It promotes the use of biodiesel, as a clean-burning and renewable substitute for petroleum diesel, is an excellent example of Circular Economy within the UAE, and significantly reduces environmental impact and enhances energy security,” commented Karl W. Feilder, Founder and CTO, Neutral Fuels.
“To realize our net-zero strategy, we are committed to making responsible decisions, such as implementing low-carbon technologies and resources. This will help to transform our business into a progressive and sustainable model,” noted Muna Al Nahdi, Head of Sustainability & Consultancy, Farnek.
