Case Study: Production of Biodiesel from Frying Oil for Use in Employees Transport Minibuses Inside Fiat's Plant in Brazil 2014-36-0156
When not disposed properly, the frying oil from the household or restaurants may cause clogging of waste drainage pipes and sewage systems, water contamination and soil sealing. The production of biodiesel from frying oil and its utilization for energy generation is a potential alternative to disposal, adding value to this waste and using it as an energy source. This article presents a case study of a proposal to produce biodiesel from frying oil for fuel up vehicles used to the employees transport inside Fiat's plant in Betim, Brazil. Besides the technical and economic evaluation, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was performed to examine the environmental viability of producing the biodiesel from cooking oil and its use for fuel up the minibuses replacing conventional diesel B5 for B50.
