Bio-Diesel Fuel of the Future

What is  Bio-diesel ?

Well,  Bio-diesel  is the future. Because it is so clean burning and easy to use,  bio-diesel  is the fastest growing and most cost efficient fuel being created today.

 Bio-diesel  is a form of  Bio-fuel  made by ripping apart the fat molecule to release three free fatty acid esters, and a sugar called glycerol.  Bio-diesel  is produced from the fatty acid molecules found in numerous feedstock oils such as plant, animal, and recycled cooking oils. The fundamental chemical reaction process that produces  bio-diesel  is relatively simple and has the potential to be adopted worldwide.

 Bio-diesel  is described as mono-alkyl esters of long-chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, conforming to ASTM D6751 specifications for use in diesel engines.  Bio-diesel  is a processed fuel derived from biological sources that can be used in diesel vehicles with little or no modification. It is a renewable fuel that can be used instead of diesel fuel, that is made from petroleum.

 Bio-diesel  is most often blended with petroleum diesel in ratios of 2 percent (B2), 5 percent (B5), or 20 percent (B20). A naturally grown, alternative fuel source it is a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from domestically grown, renewable resources.  Bio-diesel  is simple to use, biodegradable, non-toxic, and basically free of sulfur compounds and aromatics.

 Bio-diesel  is the only alternative fuel for motor vehicles to have fully completed the health effects testing requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. And is one of the most rigorously tested alternative fuels on the market.

The CO2 released into the atmosphere when  bio-diesel  is burned is recycled by growing plants, which are later processed into fuel. Tests and demonstrations, have shown that  bio-diesel  is no different from petroleum diesel in terms of engine performance and wear.

 Bio-diesel  is being used across the U.S. in fleets of snowplows, garbage trucks, mail trucks, and military vehicles. In Hawaii all  bio-diesel  is made from used cooking oil collected from restaurants, making it a 100% recycled fuel, and keeping it out of landfills.  Bio-diesel  is also extensively used in Europe, especially Germany and France.

Diesel vehicles are generally the most long lasting reliable vehicles on the road, with most engines lasting over 400,000 miles. The best part of running  Bio  Diesel is that no wars need to be fought over it, it’s entirely domestic, supports farming, it’s totally renewable, often recycled, and it cuts almost all aspects of a diesel vehicle’s emissions by more than 50 to 75%.

In a quest to help keep our air, rivers, streams, lakes and oceans cleaner, not to mention help stop Global Warming, we are attempting to free ourselves from dependency on fossil fuels, and trying to make our planet a better place to live.

Now you know what  bio-diesel  is, and why so many are making the switch to a cheaper less polluting and more efficient way to power our future.
