Renewable energy for
a better tomorrow
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s lifecycle study, B100 biodiesel reduces lifecycle carbon emissions by 78%. Biodiesel is also an efficient fuel, as it creates 3.2 units of energy for each unit of energy consumed in the production of the fuel.
There are numerous potential benefits from production and use of Biodiesel.
- Economic Benefits: Production of Biodiesel can result in
increase rural employment and provide additional markets for agricultural crops.
- Energy Security: Displacement of petro-diesel by
Biodiesel decreases our reliance on import of petroleum.
- Environmental Benefits: Compared to petro-diesel, use of Biodiesel (including
blends) provides significant reductions in harmful emissions.
