Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable, and clean-burning fuel from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled cooking oils. It is an alternative fuel that can be used in diesel engines without any modifications.
One of the primary benefits of biodiesel is its environmental sustainability. It produces significantly lower carbon dioxide emissions, particulate matter, and other harmful pollutants than petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is biodegradable, breaking down naturally and quickly without harming the environment.
Another advantage of biodiesel is its versatility. It can be used in pure form (B100) or blended with petroleum diesel in various ratios (such as B20, which contains 20% biodiesel and 80% petroleum diesel). Biodiesel blends can be used in a wide range of diesel engines, including cars, trucks, buses, and even boats and airplanes.
Some common additives that WRT uses to improve the performance and quality of diesel include:
