Benefits of Biodiesel

Rapid deforestation and use of non-renewable energy resources to meet the world's rising fuel needs are some of the primary causes of global warming. While the planet loses its green cover, it is also the carbon emissions from burning these fuels that contribute to the warming. It is here that the need for a renewable energy resource that is environment-friendly in its emissions arises and biodiesel is the answer. Biodiesel is not only 100% renewable but also produces up to 80% less CO2 compared to other conventional fuels.

As a responsible entrepreneur, Emami Agrotech realizes the far-reaching positive effects of biodiesel and endeavours to secure the future of our planet in years to come. As one enjoys the instant benefits of using biodiesel over conventional diesel, the benefits of using biodiesel are more long-term - assuring future security.

Some of the benefits of biodiesel as compared to petrol diesel are -

  • Biodiesel is one of the safest fuels to transport and store. It is as bio-degradable as sugar, ten times less toxic than table salt and has a higher flashpoint of about 125°C as compared to petro diesel which has a flash point of < than 60°C.
  • Unlike regular petrol or diesel, biodiesel is produced from biodegradable vegetable and animal fats.
  • The use of biodiesel can reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by up to 78% according to experts. Biodiesel produces approximately 80% lesser CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and almost 100% lesser SO2 (Sulphur Dioxide) emission.
  • Biodiesel provides the same power output as petro diesel.
  • Biodiesel can also be used with regular diesel. B20 is a variant of biodiesel which consists of 20% biodiesel mixed with 80% regular diesel. 100% biodiesel is commonly termed as B100. Indian Railways have decided to use B5 for its locomotives.
  • Biodiesel increases the lifespan and cleans the vehicle engine, thus providing a cost advantage over regular diesel.
  • Biodiesel can run in any regular diesel engine without the need for any work to be done on the engine.
