A Brief Guide to Biodiesel
What is biodiesel?
Biodiesel is a vegetable oil or animal fat-based diesel fuel that has a long-chain alkyl esters. It does not contain any petroleum, but it can be blended with diesel to make a biodiesel blend. It can be used in diesel engines with no major internal modifications.
It’s clean, simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially sulphur-free.
What is biodiesel made from?
Numerous vegetable oils are used to make biodiesel. For example:
Benefits of using biodiesel
✔ Almost zero sulphur content
✔ Completely odourless
✔ Energy and power content can be compared to Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD)
✔ Catches fire at 150°c compared to 60°c for inorganic diesel, making it much safer to store
✔ Extreme reductions in particulates and hydrocarbons
✔ 70% decrease in carbon monoxide releases compared to regular diesel
✔ Biodegradable and harmless
✔ It’s carbon neutral so it’s a safer fuel for our environment
Biodiesel can similarly be made from tallow and recycled cooking oils.
The difference between diesel and biodiesel
Traditional diesel is produced from mineral crude oil whereas biodiesel comes from a wide array of vegetable oils.
Biodiesel is comparable to Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel in power and energy content. It has arisen as an alternative to inorganic diesel as its biodegradable nature makes it a far greener option that produces less pollution.
It has transpired as a desirable alternative to mineral diesel and is fast becoming a key player in reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Who can use biodiesel?
✔ Vehicles – it can now be used in on-road vehicles and for off road construction, farm machinery, mining and hybrid electric vehicles
✔ Agriculture sprays – because it’s biodegradable and non-toxic it can be used as a carrier for fertiliser and pesticides
✔ Boiler fuel – with the increasing prices of natural gas, biodiesel can be used as an alternative for natural gas, but minor modifications are needed
✔ Lubricating agents/additives – it makes a great lubricity agent/enhancer in marine applications, as well as a lubricity additive due to its low sulphur level
✔ Fuel additive – it can help maintain the pumps, injectors and keep other combustion components clean
✔ Power generation – biodiesel generators provide essential stand-by power during the times of power shortage
