About Us

Over 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) have been saved from our atmosphere by EWABA members in 2016.

EWABA is a voice for its members, aiming to showcase all of the benefits that waste-based biodiesel offers (see benefits page), ensuring that waste-based biodiesel gets fair consideration in European policy. EWABA remains up to date on the latest happenings in used cooking oil, inedible fats and waste-based biodiesel markets, so that it can best inform policy and its members.

A general assembly 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.

Executive Board

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.

The Board steers European debates on climate change and energy policy by remaining active at conferences, supplying technical expertise and commissioning studies that answer questions raised by the EU institutions and the industry at large.
