PAC solutions for biodiesel

Biodiesel is a first-generation biofuel generated from vegetable oils, including soybeans, rapeseed (canola) and palm. With the ability to reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by as much as 50% compared to fossilbased fuels, biodiesel fits well into the global ambition for clean fuels.

Also known as FAME (fatty acid methyl ester), biodiesel is produced by the process of transesterification using biological feedstock, such as food crops, or latter-generation feedstock such as animal fats, greases and used cooking oil. The benefits of biodiesel are widely ranged. Carbon dioxide emissions from biodiesel are significantly lower, environmental spills aren’t as problematic as pure biodiesel is fully biodegradable, and there is little health risk to humans. Possibly the most impactful aspects of biodiesel, however, is its support of the agricultural industry and contribution to energy security.
