The quest for sustainable fuels
Daka ecoMotion produces 2G biodiesel. Daka ecoMotion utilizes animal by-products, mainly from Danish agriculture, and refines animal fat and used cooking oil into biodiesel. Hence, the biodiesel is made from waste products reducing CO2 emission by at least 83% compared to mineral oil. The production plant is situated in Løsning in Jutland and the animal carcasses collected from Danish livestock producers enable Daka ecoMotion to produce 55 million liters of biodiesel yearly.
As the world and the European Union in particular have renewed efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the quest to find alternative fuels for the transportation sector has intensified. Heavy-duty vehicles are responsible for 25 percent of all CO2 emissions arising from road transport in the EU. The European Commission’s target is to reduce CO2 […]
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
When looking at the global climate challenges, the energy system is one of the biggest obstacles towards a carbon-free and net-zero future. The European Union has set ambitious objectives for an energy system, which integrates renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as enabling a well-functioning energy market. These elements in combination can support a […]
