Can Biodiesel help us mitigate global warming & comply with Kyoto?

0

Yes. When Biodiesel displaces petroleum, it reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Biodiesel has a closed carbon cycle. When fossil fuels are burned, 100% of the CO2 adds to the concentration levels in the air. Because fossil fuels are used to produce biodiesel, the recycling of CO2 with biodiesel is not 100%, but substituting biodiesel for petroleum diesel can reduce life-cycle carbon emissions (LFEs) by 78% or more, depending on the feedstock used. B20 will reduce LFEs on average, by 15.66%. See our Biodiesel – Emissions section for more details.
