SNV Story No. 2: Will we soon be heating with purified used cooking oil?

The Ticino-based environmental scientist Markus Wilke has developed a new technology which makes it possible to burn biogenic fuels – such as purified used cooking oil – with minimal emissions in standard oil heaters. In order to ensure various different biogenic fuels can be used in future, a standardized testing procedure is to be implemented for these natural fuels. In order to get an appropriate standard in place as soon as possible, Markus Wilke has declared himself willing to play a role in devising this standard in his capacity as an expert. The SNV visited Markus Wilke in his Hotel Vezia near Lugano and spoke to him about his work as an expert and this global first in innovative technology.
