EWABA joins LIFE Bio-Lubricant project

In September 2022, EWABA joined as Communications and Dissemination partner a new LIFE Programme project named ‘Implementation of a value chain for the exclusive recycling of waste bio-lubricants and their regeneration through the production of new bio-lubricants’. The LIFE Bio-Lubricant project (acronym) is co-funded by the European Commission under the auspices of the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), and has a life duration of 33-months.

Project LIFE Bio-Lubricant has a total of four partners. The coordinator and responsible for the overall management of the project is A.&A. Fratelli Parodi. Venanzieffe is responsible for for the waste lubricant mixture collection and the first purification process. Finally, Q8Oils Italia is responsible for supporting and informing its widespread customer base and for the re-processing of recycled oils to produce and market added-value bio-lubricant solutions.

Our member, Italian advanced biofuels producer Sabio Fuels, part of the APG Group along with A.&A. Fratelli Parodi, will have a significant role to play for to success of LIFE Bio-Lubricant project by dealing with the part of bio-lubricants that cannot be used to produce new recycled bio-lubricants. These excess components will be treated by Sabio Fuels and used to produce advanced biofuels.

Project concept, scope and objectives

The use of bio-lubricants as a replacement to mineral-based lubricants is constantly growing in the European market, both for reasons of sustainability and due to their lower environmental impact/higher CO2 emissions reduction. There is currently no separate collection of waste bio-lubricants (UVEO’S) from those of mineral origin in the European Union. This results in a potential loss of efficiency of the current lubricants regeneration processes due to the presence of the bio-lubricant fraction in the lube-waste and leads to the lack of the possibility to obtain new bio-lubricating products with a regenerated base, with the consequent use of greater quantities of virgin raw materials for their production. The lack of a dedicated supply chain is also reflected in the absence of industrial regeneration processes specialized exclusively in recycling.

To respond to this issue, the LIFE BIO-LUBRICANT project gathers partners and stakeholders of a new European value chain for the realization and demonstration of a short and efficient separate collection on a semi-industrial scale, and subsequent regeneration of exhausted bio-lubricants, currently collected without distinction from those of mineral origin. The project will build a new supply chain focused on the collection of used bio-lubricants in various industrial sectors (hydraulic oils in steel mills, fluids for metal quenching, dielectric fluids, neat and emulsifiable soluble oils for metal treatment, etc.

An innovative technology developed by project coordinator A&A Fratelli Parodi will then be demonstrated in real life environment for the removal of impurities and waste (water, metal residues, etc.), hydrolytic cleavage of the bio-lubricant part, Separation of any traces of mineral contamination, with the aim to finally reintroduce the used bio-lubricant in the value-chain by transforming through esterification the obtained fatty acids into new base oils. Moreover,  process  byproducts will form the base for advanced biofuels according to RED 2 Annex IX. LIFE BIO-LUBRICANT will increase the culture of separate collection and use of regenerated products in different manufacturing sectors. The objective of the project is the recovery and treatment of 1,000 tons of waste bio/synthetic esters, with production of about 700 tons of regenerated bio-lubricants (70%) and 200 tons of advanced biofuels (20%).

Maritime decarbonisation can be unlocked through higher biofuels blends!

Our Portuguese member PRIO announced a new international partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. and World Fuel Services, incorporating higher biofuel blends to reduce maritime carbon emissions. Prio's waste-based biodiesel (ECO bunkers) allowed Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings to reduce CO2 emissions by 30%, avoiding 440 tons of CO2 in two of its cruise ships.

This new fuel, ECO Bunkers B30, is a 30% blend of advanced biofuel from waste feedstocks, produced at PRIO's biodiesel plant and blended at PRIO's tank terminal in Aveiro. The flexibility of this blending process makes it possible to scale production according to demand and adjust the percentage of Biodiesel mixtures (up to a 100% renewable product, which allows up to 86% GHG reduction), according to the needs of customers and objectives. of sustainability.

Bioledger published a press release following the approval of the implementing act on revised standards for certification schemes. Under the new regime, full digital traceability will be required throughout the global biofuel and feedstock supply chain by January 2023. 

Digitising the entire supply chain before the end of 2022 is a significant challenge but it is the overhaul needed to compile a single accurate dataset on the biofuel supply chain incentivised by the European climate policies. The Commission is working with Voluntary Schemes and stakeholders including Bioledger to demonstrate security and scalability of the central database and it’s third-party data providers

Bioledger, an independent software provider established in 2019 specifically to address risks in biofuel supply chains, has been working with diverse biofuel businesses, auditors and regulators to design, build and scale the mobile and web based applications that enable them to demonstrate compliance with the new requirements.
