BioDiesel- Bio Diesel Fuel from Vegetable Oil
|Bio Diesel is a fuel made from vegetable oil|
What is Biodiesel ?- Biodiesel (mono alkyl ester) is a kind of diesel fuel made from natural, and renewable sources such as vegetable oils.

Biodiesel is a liquid fuel and can be used in all diesel engines without any modifications from any kind.
Biodiesel is fully compatible with petroleum diesel, and can be used as a replacement fuel or like a blending component, or an additive to diesel.
The biodiesel energy can apply under the Energy Policy Act of 1992, placed to ensure US national energy security by replacing imported petroleum products using domestic alternative fuels.
|Biodiesel Benefits -
|Biodiesel Blends - Biodiesel can be blended in any concentration with petroleum based diesel
from B100 (means 100% biodiesel) to B20 (20% biodiesel : 80% petroleum diesel).
B20 is the most popular use and
|Biodiesel Stations - Currently, many places are start selling biodiesel for vehicles, home heating, and for use in any other diesel engine powered equipment. |
Many fueling stations have 24 hour access to a fueling station and even express delivery going to you. They have storages from 2,000 gallons to 22,000 gallons to meet the largest fueling needs.

||Petroleum Diesel have toxic emissions -
It is not a secret that Diesel engines burning standard petroleum fuels produce carbon dioxide,
carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and other other toxic emissions dangerous to the human health, and the environment.
Recently some researches found how the school bus emissions have negative effects on children |
Production and use of biodiesel results in a 78.5% reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
Unlike petroleum diesel, biodiesel is a renewable energy source.
It can be stored anywhere that petroleum diesel fuel is stored.
3. The lifecycle production and use of biodiesel produces approximately 80% less carbon dioxide emissions, and almost 100% less sulfur dioxide. Combustion of biodiesel alone provides over a 90% reduction in total unburned hydrocarbons, and a 75-90% reduction in aromatic hydrocarbons. Biodiesel further provides significant reductions in particulates and carbon monoxide than petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel provides a slight increase or decrease in nitrogen oxides depending on engine family and testing procedures. Based on Ames Mutagenicity tests, biodiesel provides a 90% reduction in cancer risks.
4. Biodiesel is 11% oxygen by weight and contains no sulfur. The use of biodiesel can extend the life of diesel engines because it is more lubricating than petroleum diesel fuel, while fuel consumption, auto ignition, power output, and engine torque are relatively unaffected by biodiesel.
5. Biodiesel is safe to handle and transport because it is as biodegradable as sugar, 10 times less toxic than table salt, and has a high flashpoint of about 300 F compared to petroleum diesel fuel, which has a flash point of 125 F.
Biodiesel is a proven fuel with over 30 million successful US road miles, and over 20 years of use in Europe.
When burned in a diesel engine, biodiesel replaces the exhaust odor of petroleum diesel with the pleasant smell of popcorn or french fries.

Reactor Boosts Biodiesel Production - - The
device - about the size of a credit card - pumps vegetable oil and
alcohol through tiny parallel channels, each smaller than a human
hair, to convert the oil into biodiesel almost instantly. (PESN; Apr. 19, 2006)
in Biodiesel Production -
Japanese scientists have discovered a way to convert vegetable oil into
biodiesel with a much less expensive catalyst than what is currently
used. (Slashdot; Nov. 2005)
