Upon the request of the Department of Environment of the Qeshm Free Zone to purchase one unit of BD-Expert © Biodiesel Processor (capable of producing biodiesel from waste cooking oil (WCO)) from the Extension Group of Environmentalists (EGE) within the framework of a SGP/GEF/UNDP sponsored project (IRA/SGP/OP5/Y2/STAR/CC/12/04(170)), a ceremony was held on 27 and 28 December 2014 on the Qeshm Island to deliver the unit and train the parties involved. High-ranking officials of the Island including the President of the Department of the Environment; Eng. Dakhteh, the General Manager of the Industries, Mining and Trade Office; Dr. Majidi, the Head of Qeshm Free Zone’s Incubator; Mrs. Hosseini and the National Coordinator of SGP/GEF/UNDP; Eng.

During the 2 day event, the participants were exposed to comprehensive information on the illegal applications of WCO, the harmful consequences of its recycling into the food and hygiene industries and the production of biodiesel (as a clean fuel) from WCO. While the participants were briefed about the environmental benefits of partial substitution of petroleum-diesel by WCO-Biodiesel, they were also trained in the practical sessions on how to convert WCO into Biodiesel using the patented BD-Expert reactor. BD-Expert © is a patented technology for biodiesel production from WCO in collaboration with SGP/GEF/UNDP.

In the aftermath of the event, the reactor was transferred by the Department of Environment of the Qeshm Free Zone to a village named “SALAKH” where the WCO produced during a wedding ceremony was converted into WCO-Biodiesel by the villagers trained by the personnel of the Department of Environment. The WCO-Biodiesel generated was then fueled into a diesel vehicle owned by the indigenous people.
