Promoting the Circulation of Resources

Hitachi Zosen delivered one of Japan’s largest biodiesel fuel plants (manufacturing capacity of 5,000 l/day) to Kyoto City.

In Kyoto, used tempura oil is collected from homes, restaurants, diners and elsewhere and reused as biodiesel fuel.
The use of biodiesel fuel is making a significant contribution to the circulation of resources.

This fuel is used to power 160 garbage trucks and 93 municipal buses.

What is Biofuel?

Biofuel is fuel made from wood, agricultural crops, waste products, and other organic materials.
The CO2 emitted from the combustion of biomass fuel is the same as the CO2 that plants absorb in photosynthesis.
Together with solar power generation and wind power generation, biofuel is one of the renewable energies that have been attracting attention. Bioethanol and biodiesel fuel are representative examples of it.
