UAE Building Regions First Biodiesel Plant

The United Arab Emirates is building the first biodiesel plant in the GCC (Gulf Cooperative Council) region.

The first UAE-based biodiesel plant in the GCC region will produce 3 million gallons annually of environmentally-friendlier diesel to power vehicles, drastically reducing greenhouse gas emission due to its less toxic content, by next year.

I try to keep an eye on events like this since the UAE is an OPEC member country. And although 3 million gallons of biodiesel per year may not seem like a large quantity it is when you consider that the UAE only has a population of around 4.5 million people.
