The McDonald’s fleet has traveled a combined 808,411 miles on the biofuel processed by Nuetral Fuels, diverting roughly 80% of its carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere . Dubai FDI, the foreign investment promotion arm of the Department of Economic Development, helped to support this groundbreaking recycling project.
Already 100% of the oil collected from McDonalds locations throughout the emirate locations is filtered and converted by Neutral Foods into 100% biodiesel; not a drop is wasted.
“This milestone marks a proud moment in the history of McDonald’s UAE,” said Mr. Rafik Fakih, Managing Director and Partner of McDonald’s UAE.
“In just 17 months, we’ve achieved incredible results which have made a significant contribution to the reduction of our carbon emissions in the Emirates. We hope to take this sustainable initiative a step further by increasing our usage of biodiesel in the years to come.”
“We operate a closed loop system for McDonald’s UAE where every drop of biodiesel is converted from their own used vegetable oil and is used in 100% of their logistics fleet 100% of the time in an ongoing recycling process,” said Karl Feilder, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Neutral Fuels – McDonald’s clean tech partner.
“Every day McDonald’s proves that biodiesel is a viable long-term sustainable alternative for the environment.”
