Dubai’s ENOC launches new green fuel

The product will mainly be used by companies in the commercial and industrial segment

Dubai-owned Emirates National Oil Company has announced the introduction of a new green fuel product for diesel engines.

Biodesel 5 is produced from vegetable oil, waste cooking oil and animal oil and fats.

It is claimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon monoxide, black smoke and unburnt hydrocarbons and can be pumped, stored and burned like petroleum diesel.

ENOC said the product launch was in line with the UAE’s 2050 clean energy plan and it would mainly be used by companies in the commercial and industrial segment for existing trucks and heavy construction equipment.

It has been tested in the UAE and can used without upgrading engines and fuel storage facilities.

“This product will not only help our customers gain operational efficiencies and reduce the emission level, but also bring us a step closer in adapting to the market changes and ensuring a diversified fuel mix to support the UAE’s goals and ambitions,” said ENOC group CEO Saif Humaid Al Falasi.

The UAE is planning to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix to 50 per cent by 2050, while increasing consumption efficiency by 40 per cent.

The country has committed to investing up to Dhs600bn ($163.3bn) in the plan.
