Daka ecoMotion biodiesel will primarily be produced using refined animal fats extracted from by-products from slaughterhouses or primary agriculture. Other residual products in the form of used cooking oil and other oils unsuitable for food production may also be used in the production process.
Denmark has a large animal production, and we must ensure that the by-products that are not of sufficient quality to end up on the dinner table are put to the best possible use.
For some people, the use of residues from agriculture will be controversial. These raw materials, however, are no different from other raw materials. Traditional fossil fuels also stem from plants and animals, but we do not believe that we should wait 100 million years before the present by-products from agriculture can be used.
