Biodiesel energy is the energy obtained from biodiesel which is a renewable energy source. Biodiesel as a renewable energy source is non petroleum based diesel fuel. It is manufactured by the process of transesterification of vegetable oils or animal fats. Biodiesel as a biodiesel energy product is used mainly in diesel engine vehicles.
The concept of biodiesel energy as an alternative energy source has been in use for many years now. Biodiesel energy can also be made from soya bean oil and yellow grease.
The biodiesel fuel used as a biodiesel energy product can be used as a fuel or it can be mixed with petroleum to be used as a fuel. If the biodiesel fuel is mixed with petroleum, it is given a number which indicates the amount of petroleum mixed with bio diesel. The number B100 indicates pure bio diesel fuel without any mixed ingredient in it. But when pure biodiesel energy products are used in vehicles, it may cause a few performance problems. The problems arise because the engine may not be able to tolerate so much concentration of biodiesel.
Biodiesel energy products when used for running trains are safe and effective energy resources. The biodiesel can also be used in airplanes and can be used for domestic purposes like heating homes which help in the reduction of electricity used.
Biodiesel energy products can be used anywhere in the world to generate biodiesel energy because soya bean can be grown in any part of the world.
