Environmental Benefits

If there’s any fuel that reduces emissions — both of the CO2 type and the ordinary type that chokes kiddies in the back of the school bus — it’s biodiesel. It’s sustainable, available, affordable, reliable, green, clean, popular, growing, and has a lot of fans.

  • Ozone – 50 percent less than diesel fuel.
  • Sulfur, sulfur oxides and sulfate emissions – essentially eliminated.
  • Carbon monoxide – 48 percent lower.
  • Particulate Matter – 47 percent lower.
  • Hydrocarbons – 67 percent lower for biodiesel than diesel fuel.
  • Nitrogen Oxide emissions are 10 percent higher.
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – cancer-causing compounds – down 75-85 percent, excepting a 50 percent cut in benzoanthracene. 2-nitrofluorene and 1-nitropyrene, down 90 percent.
