Find definitions of key terms, concepts, and jargon in this quick and easy reference guide, compiled to help you better understand our products, services and industry.
A 100% Bio-fuel.
A processing refinery where biofuel is produced.
A rotund black cab driving environmental super-hero.
A fuel that is an alternative and renewable energy source derived from plant material rather than mineral based fossil fuels. SYNTECH BIOFUEL biofuels are completely sustainable.
This is the British and European Standard for biodiesel. SYNTECH BIOFUEL biofuels are tested independently by UKAS accredited laboratories in line with the Biodiesel Quality Protocol.
The British and European Standard for fossil fuel derived mineral diesel.
The change in global temperatures which started to become evident in the mid to late 20th century widely attributed to the over-
Collectively known as the “Invisible Killers” responsible for air pollution and air quality issues. These emissions and particle matters hazardous to health and affect climate change.
Transitioning from using fossil fuels to renewables.
The Department for International Trade.
The Environmental Industries Commission.
The surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal or plant lives or operates. The natural world, as a whole, or in part.
Fatty Acid Methyl Ester. The scientific technical term for Biofuel.
Feedstock is the raw material we use to make biofuels. SYNTECH BIOFUEL are a waste to energy company, our feedstocks are used cooking oil, waste vegetable oils from the refining process and vegetable oils that are not fit for human consumption.
A bag that fits inside a shipping container for bulk transport. It’s just like a great big wine bag in a box.
Natural fuels such coal or gas that were formed of living organisms millions of years ago. Fossil fuels are non-renewable energy sources which are harmful to the environment because they release carbon dioxide when they burn.
Also known as Greenhouse Gases, are compounds in the atmosphere that are capable of absorbing and trapping heat, while GHGs allow sunlight or shortwave radiation to pass through the atmosphere, any energy and heat that is reflected by the earth’s surface is captured by these gases, this raises global temperatures.
The by-product of biofuel production. This can be re-used in anaerobic digestion plants or has a market in the pharmaceutical mar-
Shipping routes that use vessels running on greener fuels.
Hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) is 100% hydrocarbon fuel which is made via a process called hydrotreatment.
Intermediate Bulk Container.
The International Sustainability Carbon Certification is a sustainability certification which covers all parts of the supply chain and bio-based feedstock and renewables.
A bulk shipping container.
Also known as non-road moving machinery are construction industry equipment, vehicles and plant. Cranes, excavators, dumper trucks, diggers, generators.
Synthetic fuels which reduce emissions but are not the answer as they are still produced from fossil fuels.
Converting waste into re-useable material and resources.
The revised Renewable Energy Directive is part of the Clean Energy for all Europeans package aimed at ensuring the EU is a global leader in renewables and helping it to meet its emissions reductions commitments under the Paris Agreement.
Energy produced from a source that is not depleted when used.
The avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.
The holistic belief that what we do as a team is not just beneficial to us as a group but also, the planet we, and future generations
This was signed on the 12th December 2015 by 175 parties (174 countries and the EU) It brings all nations together into a common cause to combat climate change. Article 2 seeks to limit the global temperature increase 1.5 degrees Celsius. This is hugely impor- tant in terms of averting weather event catastrophes and ecological system disasters. We must stop damaging our environment and halt the decline of species in the Natural World.
The test we carry out to work out how much catalyst to add to our feedstock so we can carry out transesterification. It also gives a measure of how good or bad the feedstock is.
The reaction process associated with converting UCO into Biofuel
Producing energy using waste as a raw material. This is a massive win for the planet and its environment. Waste to Energy technology is a highly effective solution to help with reducing CO2 emissions, de-carbonisation and replacing fossil fuels.
The World Health Organisation was set up to direct and coordinate international health within the UN system.
Financial institution made of 5 international organisations provide loans to developing countries.
