The 20 billion Euro 'clean vehicle' grant program announced by the European Commission has led to competition in alternative fuel technologies. BioLPG, the sustainable form of LPG, which is used extensively in many countries, can be produced from domestic and industrial vegetable oil waste. The carbon emission and solid particle production of BioLPG, which has become widespread in Europe, are also at much lower levels compared to other fossil fuels. David M. Johnson, CEO of BRC, the world's largest alternative fuel systems manufacturer, said, “We have published our Environmental and Social Governance Report. As BRC, we are committed to aiming zero emission at the center of our sustainability vision ”.
The 'clean vehicle' grant of 20 billion Euros, announced by the European Commission in June, has led to competition in alternative fuel technologies. Among the options developed as an alternative to fossil fuels we use in our vehicles, bioLPG, which produces the least carbon emission and is produced by converting from vegetable oil waste, stands out with its environmental friendliness, easy production and widespread use.
Produced using similar methods with biodiesel, bioLPG is obtained by enriching domestic or industrial vegetable oils with hydrogen gas. According to the data published in the 'BioLPG Convertible Future' report published by the World LPG Organization (WLPGA) in 2018, bioLPG emits less carbon than all fossil fuels.
Used vegetable oils turn into fuel
BioLPG, which is produced by enriching vegetable oils with hydrogen gas, consumes 60 percent of waste material in the production process. According to the data in the WLPGA report, scientific studies are continuing to provide more efficient and lower cost bioLPG, which can be produced from waste oils rich in oil, as well as woody materials with high carbon levels.
More environmentally friendly than other bio fuels as well as fossil fuels
BioLPG, the converted and sustainable form of LPG with the lowest carbon emission among fossil fuels, stands out as the most environmentally friendly fuel compared to other bio fuels. According to the WLPGA report, bioLPG, which emits an average of 100 CO2e / MJ with a carbon emission value of 80 CO2e / MJ, gasoline with 30 CO2e / MJ and biodiesel with a carbon emission of 10 CO2e / MJ, said the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change. is below the global warming factor (GWP) values announced by (IPCC). According to IPCC data, the GWP factor of LPG obtained from fossil sources was declared as '0'.
BioLPG will be the fuel of the future
Evaluating the advantages of BioLPG, BRC Turkey CEO Kadir Örücü said: Compared to other alternative fuels, bioLPG stands out with its recyclability and sustainability. Lithium batteries used in electric vehicles have a limited lifespan and require replacement. This technology that we currently use in our electronic devices not recyclable wastes
Creating. Diesel fuel, which produces solid particles that harm human health, has been banned in many European countries, especially Germany. Using the same conversion principle as LPG used in many countries of the world, bioLPG can be safely consumed in any area where LPG is used. "We can say that bioLPG will be the fuel of many vehicles in the future, with the results of the efforts made to reduce production costs."
Our vision is net zero emissions
David M. Johnson, CEO of BRC, the world's largest alternative fuel systems manufacturer, emphasized that their targets are zero emissions and said, “We have published our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report. At the heart of our sustainable vision are our products consisting of low-carbon, clean transportation solutions, and our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint at the heart of our activities. The road to sustainable transportation is to produce technologies that are cost competitive and suitable for market demands. We, too, are working hard towards our long-term net zero emission targets. We believe that focusing on renewable and decarbonised gases provides an opportunity for clean and sustainable mobility as well as increasing economic recovery, creating new jobs and reaching our emission reduction targets ”.
