  1. 1. Green Biodiesel Fuel for TransportationSobhi Basheer, CEO and Founder
  2. 2. Introduction to Biodiesel Ingredients: Feedstock Methanol Chemical catalyst Transesterification is the name of the reaction that produces biodiesel from vegetable oils and fats.
  3. 3. Conventional SystemProduction costcontribution of Biodiesel Key Challengesbased on $500/ton of 1. High quality feedstock (FFA < 5%)feedstock 2. Pre-treatments 3. Excess Methanol 4. Generation of waste water 5. Energy-intensive processes 6. Low grade by-product, glycerin 7. Undesirable Saponification 8. Potential Corrosion
  4. 4. Biodiesel potential Kyoto treaty  Abundant Fuel security  Eco-friendly, Agriculture sector  Politically popular Tax incentives  Government mandates 10% of fuel supply by 2020 Numerous 7.5 billion countries gallons by mandate2012 (~2%) biodiesel 5% of fuel supply by 2013 Government Mandates of Biodiesel & Biofuels
  5. 5. Market growth* EU & US has slowed and recessed due to high feedstock21,000 World Production of Biodiesel19,000 (millions of gallons) Asia & S. America will lead17,00015,000 industry growth13,00011,000 9,000 7,000 5,000 * Forecast based on current technology
