Each year over 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) are saved from our atmosphere by EWABA members.
EWABA is a membership-driven association, aiming to showcase all of the benefits that waste-based biodiesel offers to decarbonise the EU road and maritime transport sectors. EWABA represents the interests of the industry in order to ensure that waste-based biodiesel obtains a fair treatment in an ever changing EU regulatory framework and in the different legal systems of EU Member States and third countries of key relevance, such as the UK, Switzerland or Norway.
EWABA remains up to date on the latest happenings in lipid-based waste feedstocks such as used cooking oil, inedible fats and waste-based biodiesel markets, so that it can best inform its members, policy makers and a wide array of interested stakeholders.
A general assembly gathering all members is held on an annual basis where the association’s direction and achievements are discussed. Members decide upon the budget and strategy for the following year.
Consisting of industry experts and waste-based biodiesel market leaders, the Board holds regular discussions to set the direction for the association to attain its policy objectives.
