2. Biodiesel, n - a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of
long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or
animal fats, designated B100, and meeting the
requirements of ASTM D 6751. It’s made through a
chemical process called transesterifacation whereby
glycerin is separated from the fats or vegetable oils
Biodiesel is the name of a clean burning alternative fuel,
produced from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel
contains no petroleum, but 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 little or
no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use,
biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and
3. Biodiesel is safe to handle and non-toxic.
Emission from biodiesel have been shown to
contain less carbon monoxide (48% less),
particulate matter (47%), and hydrocarbons (67%)
the leading cause of localized smog.
B100 reduces the cancer causing agents in
exhaust (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAH
and nitrated PAH) by 80%, B20 by 18%.
Biodiesel acts as a better solvent adding needed
lubricity to diesel fuel and this will help clean out
old fuel tanks.
Biodiesel is produced from domestic renewable
sources here in the Midwest.
4. Biodiesel can be blended with petroleum
diesel in almost any concentration to meet
your performance needs.
Market condition can and have reduced the
cost of biodiesel below that of conventional
Fuel Mileage is almost identical to diesel fuel.
You can adjust your blend of biodiesel to take
advantage of weather and market
opportunities, as well as switch back and
forth from Petroleum Diesel to Biodiesel.
5. The ability to swap biodiesel with diesel fuel
makes the uses of biodiesel as versatile as
the diesel engine itself.
