Biodiesel is available for distribution in the North West area. We sell biodiesel in bulk, with a minimum delivery of 20,000 litres.
Our biodiesel fuel is carefully blended with vegetable based oil assuring the highest quality.
Technicians and engine manufacturers recommend a 5% mixture of vegetable based oil, however we are able to supply higher concentrations of biodiesel to meet your requirements.
Traditional diesel is produced from mineral crude oil. Biodiesel is produced from a variety of vegetable oils, including: palm, rape, canola, soy, linseed, coconut, mustard and cotton oils. It can also be manufactured from tallow oil and used cooking oils.
It offers similar power and energy content to ULSD. Biodiesel has emerged as a realistic and desirable alternative to mineral diesel and is becoming an increasingly valuable contributor to the worlds drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
It has been in general pure use for the last 10 years in continental Europe. However, the majority of the UK biodiesel produced is expected to be used as a 5% blend with mineral diesel.
Advantages of biodiesel include the following:
The transport sector is responsible for some 25% of UK emissions. Improving the efficiency of vehicles and reducing the need to travel are essential elements, but carbon reductions also need low carbon fuels.
The Government considers that Biofuels are an important potential route for achieving the long term goal of zero carbon transport, including the introduction of the 'renewable transport fuel obligation' which requires transport fuel suppliers to increase sales of renewable fuels over time.
