Benefits of Biodiesel
Why change to 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 biodiesel is made from used cooking oil, making 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 biodiesel that we create is independently tested.
Environmental Benefits of Sustainable Fuel
For every tonne of used cooking oil provided to make 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%.
Biodiesel produces less hazardous exhaust emissions, including a significant reduction in the visible smoke when high-blend proportions of biodiesel are used.
Biodiesel is also less hazardous to the environment so, in the event of a spill, 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
