Strategic Impact

2ndVegOil has opened the door for use of new domestic pure plant oils and Jatropha oil as motor fuels while fitting with the most ambitious emission standards. This will widen the potential for pure plant oil and minimise the competition between food, base material and energy use in the EU and in arid countries. The developed oil purification method is applicable for small oil presses and allow farmers and SME to fit with high oil quality standards, thus providing them opportunities to develop businesses in the fuel sector. This will give an impetus for the development of rural areas and achieving a better social balance within the EU. The very high ecologic quality of pure plant oil will help to ensure safe and environmentally friendly transportation also in ecologically very sensitive areas.
