Our Members

Working together to produce sustainable fuels that create added economic and environmental value.

Our members are producers of biodiesel from used cooking oil, animal fats and other advanced waste feedstocks, waste collectors and technology providers. EWABA members are jointly bringing waste-based biofuels with up to +90% greenhouse gas (GHG) savings to the market, when compared with mineral diesel fuel.

Our members are working together to produce renewable fuels that create added economic and environmental value, by preventing waste and residues from causing noxious pollution, adding GHG emissions and blocking major urban infrastructure sewage systems.

EWABA gathers corporate members active in the majority of EU Member States and in important non-EU markets such as the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

We represent our members’ interests before European and national authorities by directly interacting with officials and decision-makers and distributing a wide array of policy materials such as position papers, consultation responses and policy proposals.
