Biodiesel —
Helping Sustain the Environment and the Economy 

 

What is biodiesel? That’s a question with a lot of answers. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made from a relatively simple chemical process known as transesterification. Feedstocks that are renewable resources such as animal fats, vegetable oils and recycled cooking oil are given new life and transformed into a renewable fuel.

Biodiesel is a fuel that often costs less than petroleum diesel.

It also enhances performance through higher Cetane, added lubricity and a cleaner burn. Biodiesel is a clean-energy solution for fleets and other end users who want to reduce harmful emissions. Biodiesel is also a drop-in fuel — virtually all diesel engines can run on biodiesel blends ranging from 5 percent to 20 percent without modification. Biodiesel is the fuel that can bring all these benefits to fleets, retailers and wholesalers.
