Sustainable, small-scale and decentralised biodiesel production is key to expanding the biofuels industry in South Africa and in other Southern African Development Community (SADC) member States, says biodiesel processing and equipment company Bioman Energy.

The company notes that a significant challenge for the biofuels industry is that not enough quality biodiesel is being produced to meet the 2013 supply target of a 2% biofuels penetration into the current fuel pool, as was outlined in the Biofuels Industrial Strategy that was released by the former Department of Minerals and Energy in 2007.

The extensive use of biodiesel in South Africa is directly impacted on by unsustainable production owing to the high cost and the general unavailability of quality feedstock oil, says Bioman Energy owner Janice Whitehead. (Read Full Story Here)


What is BioDiesel ?Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, propyl or ethyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (e.g.,vegetable oil, animal fat (tallow) with an alchohol.

It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.( See )

The use of biodiesel produces 80% less carbon dioxide emissions and almost 100% less sulfur dioxide when compared to petroleum diesel.  Biodiesel provides a 90% reduction in unburned hydrocarbons and an 80% reduction in aromatic hydrocarbons.  A significant reduction in particulates and carbon monoxide is further provided.

Biodiesel contains no sulfur and is 11% oxygen by weight.  Because biodiesel provides more lubrication than petroleum diesel it extends the life of a diesel engine while providing equal power and consumption.

Biodiesel is biodegradable making it safe to handle and transport.  It can be made from domestically produced crops, animal fat and waste vegetable oil. 

When burned in a diesel engine the exhaust has a pleasant smell of French fries.

Biodiesel has been successfully proven to be an alternative fuel with 30 million road miles over 20 years of use.
