What is biodiesel?

Unlike traditional diesel which is produced from crude mineral oil, biodiesel is produced from a variety of vegetable oils; palm oil, rape oil, canola oil, soy oil, linseed oil, coconut oil, mustard oil and cotton oil.

It can also be manufactured from tallow oil and waste/used cooking oils. The production of biodiesel can often lead to FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) in the fuel.

Biodiesel offers similar power and energy content to ULSD (ultra-low sulphur diesel). It has emerged as a realistic and desirable alternative to mineral diesel and is becoming an increasingly valuable contributor to the world’s drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

It has been in general 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.

What are the advantages of biodiesel?

  • Virtually zero sulphur content
  • Zero aromatic content (toluene and benzene)
  • Comparable energy and power content to ULSD
  • Flashpoint of 150°C against 60°Cfor mineral diesel
  • Significant reduction in particulates (soot) and hydrocarbons
  • 70% reduction of carbon monoxide emissions in diesel exhausts
  • Non-toxic and biodegradable; fully degraded from a waterway environment within approximately 28 days
  • Significant lubricant characteristics reducing wear & tear
  • Extended efficiency for injectors and for all engines using ULSD resulting in lower maintenance costs

Who can use Biodiesel?

The transport sector is responsible for 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 biofuels an important potential means of 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.

Even car-owners can use biodiesel if their vehicle has been modified correctly, but please check with your manufacturer when deciding to use biofuel if you’re not sure.
