What Is Biodiesel?
Biodiesel Fuel: Introduction
If you’ve ever been driving down the street and smelled the odor (or fragrance depending upon your proclivities) of French Fries coming emanating from the car in front of you, odds are that person is using biodiesel fuel in their car. Domestically produced and readily renewable, what biodiesel is made from is typically vegetable oils, animal fat, and recycled restaurant grease. When properly treated, the food-based oils burn considerably cleaner than petroleum based diesel fuel; even while exhibiting similar properties in terms of storage, delivery and energy concentration.
