Why Use Biodiesel?
Biodiesel is an energy-efficient fuel. It can extend petroleum supplies and makes for sound state and federal energy policy. The biggest benefit to biodiesel is that it is easy. In blends of B20 or less, it is literally a “drop in” technology. No new equipment and no equipment modifications are necessary. Biodiesel blends can be stored in diesel fuel tanks and pumped with diesel equipment.
Biodiesel blends also offer significant ecological benefits. Biodiesel itself is biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics. It lowers emissions of all target polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and nitrated PAH compounds.
