Biodiesel is High Performing

To be classified as Biodiesel, fuel must meet strict ASTM D6751 quality and engine performance standards. Biodiesel is one of the best-tested, high performance, high quality, and most sustainable fuels available today.

Biodiesel is Clean and Safe

Biodiesel is a clean-burning, renewable fuel. It is less combustible than petroleum diesel, making it safer to transport, handle, and store. Pure biodiesel biodegrades as quickly as sugar – or more than four times faster than petroleum-based diesel.

Biodiesel is Energy Efficient

Biodiesel has the highest energy-in, energy-out ratio of any domestic transportation fuel. Every one unit of fossil energy used to produce biodiesel yields five and a half units of energy from the resulting biodiesel.

Biodiesel Doesn’t Require Special Technology or Engine Modifications

Any vehicle or equipment that runs on diesel can also use biodiesel. Biodiesel can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a cleaner-burning biodiesel blend. And biodiesel doesn’t require new pipelines, storage tanks, or retail station pumps. In fact, because Biodiesel has excellent solvent properties, it doesn’t leave deposits and can help keep engines clean and running more efficiently.

Biodiesel Doesn’t Divert Food Crops or Raise Food Prices

Biodiesel is made from fat and oil byproducts and waste, so food meant for the dinner table still makes its way to your local grocery store.


We all agree that biodiesel is good. How much do you know about why?
