Ethanol and biodiesel allow people to burn a cleaner form of energy. Mark Kennedy
Biodiesel refers to a non-petroleum-based diesel fuel consisting of short chain alkyl (methyl or ethyl) esters, made by Transesterfication of vegetable oil or animal fat (tallow), which can be used (alone, or blended with conventional petrodiesel) in unmodified diesel-engine vehicles. Biodiesel is distinguished from the straight vegetable oil (SVO) (sometimes referred to as "waste vegetable oil", "WVO", "used vegetable oil", "UVO", "pure plant oil", "PPO") used (alone, or blended) as fuels in some converted diesel vehicles. "Biodiesel" is standardized as mono-alkyl ester.
Biodiesel is a biofuel produced from various feedstock’s including vegetable oils (such as oilseed, rapeseed and soya bean), animal fats or algae. Biodiesel can be blended with diesel for use in diesel engine vehicles. Biofuel – The term biofuel applies to any solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel produced from organic (once-living) matter. The word biofuel covers a wide range of products, some of which are commercially available today, and some of which are still in research and development. Biodiesel is a fuel made from plant oils that can be used in a conventional diesel engine.
Biodiesel is an environmentally safe, low polluting fuel for most diesel internal combustion and turbine engines. Can be mixed with petroleum diesel fuel and stored anywhere petroleum is. It is made from fresh or waste vegetable oils (triglycerides) that are a renewable energy source.
Bio-diesel is an eco-friendly, alternative diesel fuel prepared from domestic renewable resources that is vegetables oils (edible & non-edible oil) and animal fats. These natural oils & fats are made up mainly of tryglycerides. These tryglycerides when reacted chemically with lower alcohols in presence of catalyst result in fatty acid esters. These esters show striking similarity to petroleum derived diesel and are called “Bio-diesel”.
Hindustan Biodiesel is a renewable energy company that offers a variety of products and services to biodiesel fuel producers.
