What is Biodiesel
Biodiesel is a clean burning bio-fuel, produced from renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum; however it can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a Biodiesel blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, non-toxic, carbon neutral and essentially free of sulphur and aromatics.
Reasons for using Biodiesel
- Biodiesel runs in any conventional, unmodified diesel engine
- Biodiesel can be stored anywhere that petroleum diesel fuel is stored
- Biodiesel reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions, the primary cause of the Greenhouse Effect, by up to 100%.
- Biodiesel can be used alone or blended in any amount with petroleum diesel fuel
- Biodiesel is more lubricating than diesel fuel, it increases the engine life and can be used in place of sulfur
- Biodiesel contains practically no sulfur
- Biodiesel decreases soot emissions considerably
- Biodiesel is biodegradable and non-toxic, is safe to transport and is not considered a hazardous material
