What is BioDiesel?

Biodiesel is the mono-alkyl-esters of long-chain fatty-acids derived from renewable organic oil lipid sources. Biodiesel is produced from feed stocks like vegetable oils, used cooking oils and animal fats.     BioDiesel for vehicles or Bio-Heat as it is called when used in oil furnaces is a man made clean burning fuel substitute that is made

The advantages of biodiesel

Biodiesel is widely accepted as a substitute fuel for fossil diesel, its physical and chemical properties are similar to fossil diesel and the extensive use can reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Biodiesel can be mixed with diesel at any percentage or used directly on diesel engines without big adjustments.In addition, biodiesel is free of sulfur and aromatic hydrocarbons, high hexadecane value and good biodegradability. Biodiesel, which is

Biodiesel & the Environment

Biodiesel burns much cleaner than petroleum diesel Biodiesel is nontoxic and biodegradable. Compared to petroleum diesel fuel, which is refined from crude oil, biodiesel combustion produces fewer air pollutants such as particulates, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrocarbons, and air toxics. Nitrogen oxide emissions from burning a gallon of biodiesel may be slightly higher than emissions

Biodiesel Fuel Basics

Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable fuel manufactured domestically from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant grease. Biodiesel meets both the biomass-based diesel and overall advanced biofuel requirement of the Renewable Fuel Standard. Biodiesel is a liquid fuel often referred to as B100 or neat biodiesel in its pure, unblended form. Like petroleum diesel, biodiesel is
