Geneva-based company manufactures diesel with recovered vegetable oil

BiocarbCompany four employees situated in the Geneva countryside,
produces diesel fuel from used edible oils,
especially from restaurant fryers. The first phase of
manufacturing process is to clean and filter oils
recovered. Then the final fuel composition should be standardized,
despite the very different oils used. Biocarb not only recovered
raw waste oil in all the Geneva area, but also bought
oils harvested throughout Switzerland and filtered by the company
Ekura.
Biodiesel is marketed has 1,25 Swiss franc (about 0,80
euro) per liter at the pump. For the moment, it is only distributed to
professionals for machines yards or carriers
road. This fuel can be used pure or diluted, with a diesel engine
classic. It has a heating value slightly less strong than diesel
ordinary (of 2 has 5%), but generates less particles.
In a year, has Biocarb manufactures 1,5 million liters of biofuel, and its
capacity can go up to 3 million liters per year. But the
Confederation, which does not tax the biodiesel production limit 5
million liters per year, for fear of falling tax revenues.
The liberalization of the market, which will allow the importation of biodiesel and
result in the removal of production quotas in Switzerland, is planned
for 2007, in coordination with the European Union. In Switzerland, we could
thus recycle 6 to 10 million liters of oil per year.
