In India, Biodiesel made from chicken waste gets a patent

Biodiesel is a fuel that is produced from yellow grease, used cooking oil, or animal fats. Moreover, Biodiesel from vegetable oil, Biodiesel from sunflower oil, and Biodiesel from rapeseed oil are quite popular too.

In India, Biodiesel is produced predominantly from imported palm stearin oil. In order to use substitution to phase out imported stearin oil, it has been decided to utilize used cooking oil. Used cooking oil works as a great ingredient in the making of Biodiesel.

However, did you know? In Kerala, India, a veterinary doctor-turned-inventor made Biodiesel from the slaughtered chicken waste.

After seven prolonged years of waiting, John Abraham, a veterinary doctor who became an inventor, has finally received patents for his invention of making Biodiesel from slaughtered chicken waste. The Biodiesel that Mr. Abraham made from the slaughtered chicken is believed to offer a mileage of over 38 km a liter at around 40 percent of the current price of diesel and potentially decreases pollution by half.

“In April 2015, Bharat Petroleum’s Kochi Refinery issued a quality certificate for the Biodiesel John invented, and since then, a college vehicle was being run on this fuel,” Mr.Abraham said.

After seven-and-a-half years, the Indian Patent Office, at last, conceded us the patent on July 7, 2021, for inventing “Biodiesel created from delivered chicken oil”, Mr. Abraham, an associate professor at the veterinary school under the Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, told PTI from Wayanad.

Nothing can be more enchanting than witnessing Indians opting for sustainable measures and switching to Biodiesel. The Government of India is empowering people to utilize the benefits of used cooking oil by mandating laws such as donating the used cooking to the biodiesel manufacturers in India. It encourages innovative people like Mr. Abraham to make better alternatives for the raw materials used in the production of Biodiesel.
