ADVANTAGES OF BIODIESEL


Smartest technologies benefit and serve multiple interests including improved economy, positive impact on environment and government policies. There are multiple advantages that Biodiesel offers while addressing some pressing concerns in the time to come.

Simple to use

Biodiesel is simple in use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulphur and aromatics. It is an excellent fuel for operation of diesel engines, steam boilers, thermic fluid heaters and vaporizers. Using Biodiesel doesn’t require any kind of change made in diesel engines. It’s used either in 100 % replacement of diesel or blended in any desired percentage.

Cost Efficient

With the soaring price of petroleum-based products, biodiesel is becoming an increasingly affordable option on petroleum diesel. It has almost the same energy efficiency as petroleum diesel. In addition, it has lubricity benefits that fossil fuels lack. Thus, keeps moving parts from wearing prematurely and enhances the life of engine.

Reducing dependence on imports

Biodiesel is domestically produced fuel that promises self-reliance for a country like India. India imports 82% of its oil needs. Numbers suggest that India was the world’s third largest importer of crude oil in 2018. It spent an estimated US $ 120 billion on crude imports in 2018-19. Biodiesel promises to change this scenario and help cut imports much thereby ensuring lots of savings for government exchequer.

Health Benefits

Scientific research confirms that biodiesel exhaust has a less harmful impact on human health than petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel emissions have decreased levels of hydrocarbons and nitrate compounds that is identified as potential cancer-causing compounds. It is highly biodegradable than sugar and less toxic than table salt.

Environmental Benefits

Biodiesel has many environmental benefits to offer. It is a clean burning renewable substitute for petroleum diesel. Using it in vehicles causes much lesser air pollution than diesel which means better air quality. It reduces carbon emission leading to lesser Greenhouse gas emission and thereby help prevent global warming and its disastrous impact on our planet.

Energy Security

Biodiesel is derived from renewable resources. it is produced on demand unlike the petroleum products that will vanish in years to come. It has the potential of solving the energy crisis that the world is staring at. Using it as a vehicle fuel will help create energy security. Biodiesel industry is not here to replace the petroleum business but to help create a balanced energy policy, extend the usefulness of petroleum and the longevity and cleanliness of diesel engine.
