Benefits of Biodiesel
Why change to Biogold™ biodiesel?
Switching to more sustainable fuel options has become more important in recent times as our awareness grows of the negative impacts of global fossil fuels. The biodiesel component of Biogold™ biodiesel is made from used cooking oil, making Biogold™ biodiesel a great renewable fuel source.
Because we exclusively use canola-based vegetable oil, as well as ensuring a strict screening process, we meet the fuel standards for both New Zealand engines and European biofuel regulation. Every tank of Biogold™ that we create is independently tested.
Environmental Benefits of Sustainable Fuel
For every tonne of used cooking oil provided to make Biogold™ biodiesel, New Zealand’s CO2 emissions are reduced by at least two tonnes when compared to using mineral diesel. It also helps clear the air, reducing particulate emissions by up to 50%.
Biogold™ biodiesel produces less hazardous exhaust emissions, including a significant reduction in the visible smoke when high-blend proportions of Biogold™ biodiesel are used.
Biogold™ biodiesel is also less hazardous to the environment so, in the event of a spill, Biogold™ biodiesel B100 (100% biodiesel) degrades quickly.
- A reduction in engine noise
- Improved fuel lubricity, providing added protection to fuel-injection components
- Biodiesel is a much safer and simpler fuel to store and handle than traditional mineral diesel
