What is biodiesel?
This is a fuel created from refining used cooking oil.
The diesel which you buy at the pump has 5% biodiesel mixed in by law.
Using biodiesel made from waste vegetable oils is one of the greenest ways to power your diesel engines as you are using a fuel made from waste. Proper Oils ensures that 100% of the waste vegetable oil which we collect is recycled and refined into biodiesel.
What are the benefits of using biodiesel?
- It minimises your carbon emissions – as your fuel is made from ‘waste’ oil.
- It reduces harmful emissions which improves air quality.
How does it work?
The waste cooking oil is refined into biodiesel by a process called ‘transesterification’. This changes the molecular structure so that it behaves like mineral diesel refined from hydrocarbon oils. To use biodiesel, you do NOT need to modify your vehicle – you use it as you would use normal diesel fuel.
