Sixth Edition of Biodiesel Handling and Use Guide


Guide offers information on handling biodiesel

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently released its sixth edition of the Biodiesel Handling and Use Guide for those who blend, distribute and/or use biodiesel blends. Funded by Clean Fuels Alliance America, the guide offers basic information on biodiesel's proper and safe use to help fleets, blenders, distributors and others understand the handling and use of these fuels while highlighting environmental and performance benefits.

Under the direction of Clean Fuels and NREL, revisions to the guide are provided by leading industry researchers and subject matter experts and approved by independent reviewers and the U.S. Department of Energy. The last revision was published in November 2016. The latest edition captures the most recent studies and standardized use for on- and off-road applications, railroad, marine, home heating oil systems and power generation applications. New data on storage stability, manufacturer approvals, and the increasing level of quality across the industry will provide greater benefits including higher expectations of performance.
