Once used cooking oil is collected it is then processed and converted into biodiesel for reuse.
Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable, and clean-burning fuel made from natural, non-petroleum based resources such as vegetable oils and animal fats. Biodiesel is used as a substitute for traditional diesel fuel in diesel engines.
Biodiesel is typically made by a chemical process called transesterification, which involves the reaction of a fat or oil with an alcohol, such as methanol or ethanol, to produce methyl esters (the basic building blocks of biodiesel) and glycerin. The resulting fuel is biodegradable, non-toxic, and produces fewer emissions than traditional diesel fuel when combusted.
Biodiesel can be used in its pure form, known as B100, or blended with traditional diesel fuel to create various blends such as B20 (20% biodiesel and 80% traditional diesel). Biodiesel blends are commonly used in the transportation industry, including buses, trucks, and trains, as well as in off-road applications, such as in boats, construction equipment, and generators.
Using biodiesel can help reduce dependence on fossil fuels, decrease emissions and pollution, and support the growth of domestic agriculture. It can also increase engine life and improve lubricity, reducing wear and tear on engines.
