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 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles by 15 percent in 2025 compared to 2019 levels and at least 30 percent in 2030 compared to 2019 levels. Biofuels significantly contributes to reach these goals.
Continuous focus on sustainable growth has generated several environmentally friendly businesses and models that tackle future challenges. Daka ecoMotion is one of the companies tackling these challenges through the production of 55 million litres of advanced biodiesel. Daka ecoMotion utilises animal by-products, mainly from Danish agriculture, and refines animal fat into biodiesel.
With an 83 percent reduction of CO2 emissions compared to conventional fuels, renewable biodiesel from Daka ecoMotion has the potential to be one of the major contributors to fulfill the EU’s CO2 reduction targets in the heavy-duty vehicle sector.
