  2. 2. Spinning Wheel Energy, Inc. “The Matilda” (a biodiesel plant) To be constructed in Puerto Rico, USA
  3. 3. Biodiesel 101
  4. 4. Biodiesel Defined • Biodiesel, n.- a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, designated B-100 and meeting the requirements of ASTM D 6751. • Biodiesel blend, n.- a blend of biodiesel fuel meeting ASTM D 6751 with petroleum-based diesel fuel designated BXX where XX is the volume percent of Biodiesel.
  5. 5. Biodiesel Raw Materials • Oil and Fat – Sunflower – Beef tallow – Pork lard – Used Cooking oils – Soybean – Corn – Canola – Cottonseed Alcohol Methanol Ethanol Catalyst Sodium hydroxide Potassium hydroxide
  6. 6. The Biodiesel Reaction Yields • Biodiesel • (100 lbs.) • + • Glycerin • (10 lbs.)
  7. 7. Biodiesel Physical Properties • High Cetane (>50 vs. 42) • Flash Point (260° F vs. 150° F) • Virtually Zero Sulfur • Meets 2006 ULSD rule • No Aromatic Content • Superior Lubricity • Integrates into existing petroleum infrastructure
  8. 8. B5 Performance Properties • Performance to B5 has Similar • Petrodiesel: • Torque • Horsepower • Mileage • Range • BTU Content
  9. 9. Environmental Attributes • Energy Balance - for every one unit of energy needed to produce biodiesel, 3.2 units of energy are gained. • Biodegradable and Non-Toxic - Tests sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture confirm that biodiesel is safer than diesel and biodegrades as fast as dextrose, a test sugar. • Greenhouse Gases – A 78% life cycle decrease in CO2 according to a USDA and DOE study.
  10. 10. Cleaner Emissions • Emission Type B100 B20 B2 • Total Unburned Hydrocarbons - 67% - 20% -2.2% • Carbon Monoxide -48% -12% -1.3% • Particulate Matter -47% -12% -1.3% • Oxides of Nitrogen 10% 2% 2%
  11. 11. Biodiesel Health Properties • Reduces particulate emissions • Reduces targeted compounds thought to cause cancer: PAH, n PAH • Biodiesel blends did not generate any unexpected new hydrocarbon species • Significantly reduces the mutagen city of exhaust in both the gaseous and particulate phases
