Is Biodiesel Fuel Part of Our Future

images (25)With our depleting oil resources becoming more of a reality due to our heavy consumption of fuel in our vehicles and the growing number of vehicles in the world, we are searching for other methods of refuelling our cars. There are different energy sources that are being researched such as the use of electricity to replace fuel in our cars and biodiesel which is made of used sunflower oil.

What does the future hold for us? We use our fuel resources so often that the planet cannot keep up with our increasing demand. Electricity is good fuel resource but it is also one that is depleting so much that we have to find other methods of generating electricity. Electricity generating methods include that of hydro energy and solar power. Both are great natural resources that are constantly available. Biodiesel is the other fuel resource that is already being used in certain vehicles as an alternative to diesel fuel. Biodiesel fuel is produced after much used sunflower oil is collected from various restaurants, caf├ęs and households. The sunflower oil is then put through a process of conversion in order to make it suitable as a fuel source for our diesel vehicles. Such vehicles don’t have to convert their engines to use biodiesel. They simply replace the standard diesel with the new biodiesel when refilling their fuel tanks and drive on as usual. This makes it much easier for the vehicle owner to convert to biodiesel as their daily activities are not affected and there are no additional costs of converting the vehicle. All you have to do is find a supplier nearby that you could purchase bulk biodiesel from and you can continue on your merry way. You can find a supplier by searching online for one that is within your area. The cost of this type of fuel is also much lower than the standard diesel because it is usually produced within your country so there are no extra import costs associated with the fuel. Thus the suppliers can keep the costs low and very competitive versus conventional diesel.

There is a future for biodiesel fuel and it will become part of our lives as we replace it with the new fuel. This is already happening today as there are biodiesel fuel suppliers that convert the sunflower oil and have a ready-to-use product on the market. There are certain companies that are already running their fleet of trucks on biodiesel. So the answer is yes, biodiesel is a part of our future. It is part of our present.

Biodiesel and Sunflower Oil: What Do They Have In Common?

download (71)I’m sure during some conversation with your peers; you’ve had a discussion about biodiesel and what it is. You’ve probably also wondered what it is made of and how it is produced. And, if you really can use it in the car that you drive?

Biodiesel has been in the making for quite some number of years. So much research has been conducted and much trial and error has gone into making it. Due the dwindling resource that we use daily namely petrol and diesel, we have had to look to other sources for fuel. Not to mention the high costs of petrol and diesel nowadays.

How are we supposed to keep going if the fuel costs just keep increasing?

I remember back in the day when it took me only R300 to fill my tank of petrol, now it’s double that and it barely lasts me two weeks. So it’s quite a relief that biodiesel has advanced to the point where we could use it in our own cars and trucks. Remember, though that it is biodiesel so you can only use in a diesel engine vehicle; whether it is a car or truck. It will function just as well, though, in your truck as conventional diesel.

Biodiesel is made from used sunflower oil. Many restaurants and cafes use sunflower oil in bulk. They could use hundreds of litres of this sunflower oil in a day. Thus disposing of it is a mission for these restaurants. It is legally required that they dispose of it in an ethical and healthy manner. Biodiesel producers have identified this market and have thus turned this wasteful used sunflower oil into a valuable resource.

The biodiesel producers collect the used sunflower oil from the various restaurants and take it back to their factory where they convert the oil into a usable fuel resource that you can use in your truck. This is a great resource for truck fleet owners. You could purchase biodiesel in bulk at a low cost and power your fleet of trucks for long time.

So now you have a better idea of biodiesel is and what is made of. You can easily use in your diesel powered truck and save a lot of money while you’re at it. Be sure to buy in bulk so that you have enough biodiesel. This is also great way of saving as you can keep stock of it while you negotiate better rates for large quantities.
