Biodiesel is helping power Desert Fuels’ healthy growth as a major supplier of both conventional and alternative fuels.Biodiesel is an emerging alternative fuel that powers diesel engines. It’s also helping power Desert Fuels’ healthy growth as a major supplier of both conventional and alternative fuels. Whether you’re looking for a great source of aggressively priced biodiesel with standout customer service, or just want to know more about a fuel that is increasingly impacting the fuel industry, you’ve clicked the right link.
… a fuel made from 100% natural vegetable oils and fats, or “feedstocks”, chemically processed to power diesel engines. About 75% of biodiesel in the United States is produced from soybean oil and 25% from other organic oils, animal fat, and recycled greases. Biodiesel can be used in pure form (B100) or blended with petroleum diesel in any concentration. Blended biodiesel containing 5% bio material (B5) and 20% bio material (B20) are the most common blends and can be used in diesel engines with no or only minor modifications.
Unlike ethanol, a biofuel produced almost solely from corn, which is most conducive to the Midwestern climate, biodiesel can be derived from a wide variety of vegetable feedstocks, allowing production facilities to locate virtually anywhere in the U.S., as evidenced by new production plants in New Mexico and the Western states.
In a move away from petroleum-based fuel, both federal and state governments are mandating the phased-in use of increasing levels of biodiesel by the motoring public.
The New Mexico Mandate
Despite these sometimes shifting government mandates and regulations, consumer demand and the economics of the fuel industry will continue to peak interest and growth in the biodiesel market.For example, in 2010, the state of New Mexico mandated the use of B5 biodiesel blend for all state agencies, government fleets, political subdivisions (cities, counties, and towns), and public schools. On July 1, 2012, the mandate was to extend to all consumers who purchase diesel fuel, however, the state delayed its implementation due to concerns about biodiesel’s low supply and high price.
Nationwide, under the federal “Renewable Fuel Standard”, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes requirements to incrementally increase the mandated use of biofuels throughout the United States.
Despite these sometimes shifting government mandates and regulations, consumer demand and the economics of the fuel industry will continue to peak interest and growth in the biodiesel market. And we’re here to help meet that demand.
