Biodiesel: Fat to Fuel
‘Thanks to this project, yesterday’s French fry grease is tomorrow’s truck fuel.’
Biodiesel is an alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources. It is safe to use in any diesel engine and is more sustainable and far less polluting than conventional petroleum diesel. Biodiesel significantly reduces asthma-causing soot, greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide in air emissions. Along with creating less pollution, biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable and non-toxic. Produced from renewable resources such as waste cooking oil or soybean oil, biodiesel reduces dependence on limited energy resources and foreign oil. The “fat to fuel” process recovers energy and recycles waste oils that are either dumped in landfills or flushed down drains, clogging pipes and causing costly sewer spills.
