What is Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is a clean-burning diesel replacement fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as any agricultural seed oil, recycled grease, etc. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend. Just like petroleum diesel, biodiesel can be used in any unmodified diesel engine.

What are the benefits of Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is an oxygenated fuel (11% oxygen on a mass basis) and thus contributes to a more complete combustion and a greatly improved emissions profile. 

• Renewable

• Non-toxic

• Sulphur free

• Have higher flashpoint than petroleum diesel

• Free of carcinogenic benzene

• Bio-degradable

• Safe to handle, transport and store

Engine performance with biodiesel and biodiesel blends is virtually the same as with straight petroleum diesel. Even very low amounts of biodiesel can provide substantial lubricity benefits to petroleum diesel fuels.

Biodiesel emits 80% fewer hydrocarbons, 60% less CO2 and 50% less  particulate matter than petroleum diesel.
