Biodiesel and mobility management

Biodiesel in Graz

1986 south of Graz a farmers cooperative developed a Biodiesel production plant in cooperation with the University of Graz

Feedstock was first rape seed, but soon extended to used cooking oil

The environmental department of the city of Graz developed a programme of used cooking oil collection for restaurants and households

The chemistry institute at the University of Graz developed in to one of the most advanced Biodiesel analysis institutes in the world and developed the first biodiesel standards

The Institute of Internal Combustion Engines and Thermodynamics at the Technical University in Graz has some or the most advanced vehicle and engine test beds in the world

Biodiesel in Graz -2

1998 – foundation of Biodiesel International BDI, today the world market leader in Multi-Feedstock BioDiesel plant technology

1994 – GVB, Graz public transport tested 2 biodiesel busses operating on 100% biodiesel

1997 – under EU-programme CENTAUR, 10 more busses went in operation

2002 – 2005 under EU-programme Trendsetter, the whole busfleet was converted, today, 130 busses are operating with 100% biodiesel, the only public transport company in the world to do so

2005 – 60 taxis from the Taxi company 878 are operating with 100% biodiesel

About 500 tons of used cooking oil are collected each year in Graz alone and converted to biodiesel

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger


Biodiesel and mobility management

Biodiesel operation technical requirements

exchange of fuel hoses and gaskets

check of all parts supplied with biodiesel (heaters)

certification from the engine manufacturer

consent from the producer of the injection pump

2005-2006 additional supply with particle filters

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger


Biodiesel and mobility management

Biodiesel operation results

motor oil change every 30.000 km, no special motor oil is needed

no greater wear in the engine

33% fossil diesel oil in winter

7% higher consumption

biodiesel price is lower

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger


Biodiesel and mobility management

Biodiesel and Mobility Management in Graz

Used cooking oil collection service for households in connection with bulky waste collection

FGM-AMOR experience with mobility consulting

EU-project Trendsetter

Campaign for collecting oil and sustainable mobility

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger

Biodiesel and Mobility Management in Graz - 2

Information day

Door to door consulting

Info and consulting on toxic waste, used cooking oil collection, recycling food

Info on biodiesel use in Graz

Personal and general mobility consultation

Information on Trendsetter project in Graz

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger


Biodiesel and mobility management

Evaluation

During action, and by telephone interviews 3 months later

8% of approached households started collecting used cooking oil

55% still know about the services of Mobil Zentral

Slight increase in general satisfaction with Public Transport

Behaviour change not measured (not enough time for individual in depth surveys, results would be too unreliable)

DI Karl Reiter | DI (FH) Markus Garger


Biodiesel and mobility management

Conclusion

Successful small pilot scheme

Door to door consulting is too expensive

Combination of consulting on used cooking oil collection, waste and mobility works

Systematic continuation in Graz is possible, but doubtful
