Biodiesel is a sustainable fuel that has grown in popularity as a cleaner-burning alternative to petroleum diesel. It’s made from renewable resources that would otherwise have no further use, including recycled cooking oil, waste animal fats and vegetable oils. In most cases, it’s blended with petroleum diesel. For example, a common blend is called “B20,” meaning the fuel is 20% biodiesel and 80% petroleum diesel.
Recently, some forward-looking organizations have been using higher blends, including B100, to take even greater advantage of the environmental benefits of biodiesel. Read on for answers to the most commonly asked questions about B100, its benefits, and how it can significantly reduce emissions and protect your bottom line in the long run.
