Bootstrapping Biodiesel in Singapore

19 May 2006

The Star reports on a Singaporean entrepreneur who is building the first plant in the island city-state to produce biodiesel out of used cooking oil.

Kom Mam Sun ran his Nissan truck for 18 months on biodiesel, and the truck passed the Land Transport Authority emissions test without a hitch. In 2003, he founded Biofuel Research Pte Ltd with the aim of bringing and providing biodiesel to Singapore.

Kom’s process achieves a 95% biodiesel yield from waste cooking oil that has a high Free Fatty Acid (11%) content.

Biofuel Research has built a S$600,000 (US$380,000) plant at Tuas which can produce around 1,500 tonnes of biodiesel a month (453,000 gallons US). The company sells only B100 biodiesel, no blends.

Kom is buying used oil at 50-60 cents (Singapore) per liter, and plans to sell the finished product well below the current pump price for diesel, which is about S$1.30 per liter (US$3.11 per gallon).

B-100 is easy for them. Singapore is almost on the equator (a bit more than 1 degree north). It never gets cold enough to make B-100 congeal.

A lot of people will want to burn B100 in this situation! And it is 100% recycled vege oil.

Not only that, the plant only required USD380k to start business, not 10s of millions.
