A new innovation consortium, Waste 2 Value, has been established to develop and refine production of biodiesel from waste and slaughterhouse by-products, also known as 2G biodiesel. The consortium comprises Daka, Grundfos, OK and Dinex Emission Technology, as well as Danish Technological Institute and the Technical University of Denmark.
 
Waste 2 Value has a total budget of DKK 26.2 m (USD 4.7 m), of which the Danish Council for Technology and Innovation has granted DKK 10.3 m (USD 1.9 m), while the consortium partners jointly finance the remaining sum. Full-scale production of biodiesel is slated to start by the end of 2007, and to be further expanded later, based on the experience gained from the Waste 2 Value project.
 
In addition to making the production process more efficient, the consortium also aims to reduce emissions from vehicles using biodiesel. Dinex Emission Technology will develop a special type of catalyser for this purpose. Waste 2 Value estimates that production of biodiesel from waste and by-products could cover 8% of Denmark's consumption of diesel for the transport sector. The news was reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer) and on the Danish Technological Institute website.
