Dubai-based Dulsco Group, a leader in People Solutions, Environmental Solutions, Talent Solutions and Energy Recruitment Solutions, saves up to 200,000kg of CO2 emissions a year by using greener, cleaner biofuels in company vehicles, according to a press statement.
Under a new partnership with Middle East's leading biofuel producer Neutral Fuels, Dulsco People is powering 75 per cent of its vehicles in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a special biodiesel blend fuel.
Launched in the run up to COP28 UAE as part of Dulsco Group’s commitment to supporting the UAE fight against climate change, the initiative currently saves 4.5 per cent in greenhouse gases. Dulsco People is aiming to increase the savings to over 6 per cent by the end of 2023 by switching to an even more effective biofuel blend – and expanding the scheme to its operations in Ras Al Khaimah. Dulsco saved 17,600 kg of CO2 emission – equivalent to taking four fossil-fuelled cars off the road for a year – in the first 10 weeks of the initiative, which was launched in late July 2023.
Neutral Fuels collects waste cooking oil and transforms it into various blends of green fuel. Currently, 135 Dulsco People vehicles use biofuel, with plans to phase out fossil fuel across the entire fleet. Meanwhile, sister company Dulsco Environment is helping to produce the fuel itself, by providing more than 450,000 litres of used cooking oil to Neutral Fuels. Neutral Fuels collects the waste cooking oil on behalf of Dulsco’s environmental solutions arm. The environmental arm provides world class recycling, treatment and processing waste management services which, in turn, help thousands of businesses, industries and residential communities meet their green goals.
