UAE-based biofuels’ company hits the mark

Neutral Fuels has become the first biofuel firm to successfully get certification under the UAE’s new Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) biodiesel quality standard.
The ESMA certification proves that Neutral Fuels and its products and services satisfy the quality standards required by UAE laws, procedures and codes of conduct.
ESMA is the federal entity responsible for setting standards for quality control. Its biodiesel standard was established to ensure that B100 – pure biodiesel – complies with local standards in order to be blended with diesel fuel.
The UAE is the first country in the Middle East to set its own standard for biodiesel.
Karl Feilder, CEO of Neutral Fuels, said the award adds one more layer of regulation to the company’s high quality standards, and provides an added assurance for its customers.
He said: “ESMA certification requires strict quality control measures, advanced technology and the use of high quality raw materials.
“This is the standard we’ve always set. Extensive in-house testing and years spent perfecting our manufacturing processes gave us the confidence to put ourselves forward as the first biofuel producer to be tested, and helped us become the first to be certified.”
“Meeting the high quality standard for the UAE’s biofuel requires high levels of commitment and quality management. These are shared values that percolate every level of our organization. It is also a tribute to our suppliers and customers, many of whom have been with us since we started producing biofuel in the UAE in 2011,” he added.
Neutral Fuels was the first biorefinery in the United Arab Emirates to pioneer 100% pure, European compliant biofuel from used cooking oil for use in cars, trucks, buses and generators.
