Buland I. Dizayi was born in 1963 and received his education at the best and illustrious schools. Awarded his fist degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Technology in 1985 Ranked the first among 235 graduates.
As industrial emissions and air pollution became a major concern and threat for the mankind and the ecosystem, he started to focus on that field of studies. Therefore, his second milestone was to study the quality of the environment components to mitigate the detrimental effects of industrialization and the ever-increasing means of transportation. Accordingly, he was awarded a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Baghdad in 1989.
It was of utmost importance to escalate his practical experience in par to his knowledge. He worked for years in the industry and he received many training courses at the Wykham Farrance facilities UK, and at KOICA South Korea.
The next milestone was his PhD program at Leeds University in the UK. He studied the environmental performance of direct usage of used cooking oil as a fuel in heavy goods vehicles under real world driving conditions. It was a collaborative work between Convert to Green (C2G), a major renewable fuel producer, the United Biscuits Midlands Distribution Center, the fleet operator, and Bioltech Systems GMBH. Germany, the fuel mixer provider. This was an award-winning project in which a 44-ton vehicle was driven on 100% non-trans-esterified used cooking oil on the motorway and 84% on average under mixed urban and motorway driving. CO2 was reduced by 98% compared to petroleum diesel fuel. Engine durability and power were not affected by the new fuel. A little increase in fuel consumption was envisaged due to the slight lower heating value of the C2G UCO. In fact, these results were five years ahead of the UNCCC resolution that mandates all the fuel suppliers in Europe and the US to provide gas stations with fuels which contain 10% biofuel by 2020.
