Renewable Diesel Fuel Production For Fleet Managers

Fleet supervisors from many different companies and municipal city managers have been taking a look at biodiesel in an effort to help save fuel cost and lower their emissions.

Biodiesel fuel is produced from soybean and various vegetable oils like corn, mustard, flaxseed, sunflower, camelina and now algae oil. They are all environment friendly resources that are produced in America.

The drawback to using retail biodiesel is price. When you purchase biodiesel at a fuel station it is approximately 20 cents more per gallon as compared to petroleum diesel. As much as 50 cents of that price is a result of local taxes and fuel transportation fees.

To eliminate those fees many fleet managers are opting for on-site biodiesel production. Some city managers have even set up waste cooking oil collection centers that make it easy to recycle the waste vegetable oil. All of this effort has a enormous pay off to the fleet managers bottom line.

For fleet executives with more than 150 pieces of large machinery, including 18 wheel trucks, dump trucks, ambulances, bulldozers and large mowing tractors. This biodiesel system can really enhance the operation of transportation equipment and have tremendous impact on the earths atmosphere even with a B-20 biodiesel blend.

In contrast to compressed natural gas; propane; E-85, which is an alcohol blend gasoline, biodiesel doesn’t need expensive equipment adjustments to storage tanks, vehicles or other infrastructures or additional extra parts. Biodiesel is a true plug and play alternative fuel.

The first step to making biodiesel as a fleet manager is the availability of raw ingredients, such as vegetable or animal grease of some sort, methanol or ethanol for the biodiesel Transesterification process and after that it really is time to purchase a biodiesel plant to handle your manufacturing goals.

A good industrial biodiesel processor will allow you to have full automation, safety features and methanol recovery all in one compact package. The physical footprint of these machines is normally minimal so the plant production space can be maximized.

When biodiesel is used, it releases no net Co2 into the environment because the plants that make the oil that is used as biomass for biodiesel production captures the same amount of Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere then is released when the biodiesel is used as fuel. Bio-diesel is the best sustainable energy solution that will help the planet.
