Head of Iran’s Fuel Conservation Company (IFCO) Abbas Kazzemi announced that his company has set up a specialized workgroup in cooperation with Ministry of Agricultural Jihad to produce biodiesel.

“Upon the request of cabinet, a fuel basket was defined recently in which the share of fuel used by diesel cars rose by 17 percent hitting 24 percent,” Kazzemi told Shana.

“With regard to increasing the number of diesel vehicles in the country, widespread programs have been defined for meeting this kind of vehicles’ fuel, including production of biodiesel from food processing factories’ wastes,” he added.

Referring to good quality of produced biodiesel, Kazzemi said “Biodiesel applications are the same as petroleum-based diesel even though it has a privilege that does not pollute the air.”
