Environmental benefits of BioDiesel
Environment benefits of BioDiesel compared to
petroleum based fuels:
- BioDiesel fuel is Carbon Neutral and may help to slow Global Warming according to
- BioDiesel reduces emissions of
carbon monoxide (CO) by approximately 50% and
carbon dioxide by 78% this is because the carbon in
BioDiesel emissions is recycled from carbon
that was already in the atmosphere earlier
that year, rather than being an antique
carbon from petroleum that was stored deep
in the earth's crust millions of years ago.
Antique carbon is claimed by some to contribute to the Greenhouse
gas problem and Global Warming.
- BioDiesel contains fewer
- BioDiesel eliminates
sulfur emissions (SO2) which
cause acid rain, because BioDiesel doesn't contain sulfur.
- BioDiesel reduces the
particulates by as much as 65%,
are very small pieces of solid
combustion products. This also reduces cancer
- BioDiesel has the highest energy content
of any alternative fuel.
- BioDiesel is biodegradable and non-toxic
according to tests done by the United States
Department of Agriculture. These tests confirm
BioDiesel is less toxic than table salt and
biodegrades as quickly as sugar.
- In the
United States, biodiesel is the only
alternative fuel to have successfully
completed the Health Effects Testing
requirements (Tier I and Tier II) of the
Clean Air Act (1990). This means that
BioDiesel is a clean burning fuel.
