Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a clean, low-carbon transport fuel that can be used as a substitute for fossil diesel, or blended with fossil diesel in diesel engines without modification.

Approximately 90 percent of global biodiesel production is based on edible oils produced from crops such as rapeseed, soy and palm. Biodiesel from edible oils is controversial because it competes with food production, may contribute to rising food prices, and may cause indirect land use changes that call its environmental benefits into question.

ASB Biodiesel's product, however, is produced from waste. Therefore, it does not lead to land use changes. It also produces significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions because it avoids the upstream carbon emissions associated with crop production and seed oil extraction. In fact, at 14 grams of CO2 equivalent per MJ, our biodiesel is among the lowest-carbon transport fuels commercially available today.
