Green Diesel
Biodiesel (a.k.a. Renewable Diesel, Green Diesel) is composed of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) usually obtained from the transesterification of used vegetable oils or animal fats. In the production of biodiesel, the triglycerides in the fats and oils are reacted with methanol to make methyl esters and glycerine. The process uses a catalyst, typically NaOH or KOH to enhance the reaction rates. Much like ethanol, biodiesel is blended with traditional diesel fuel in varying proportions (typically 20% biodiesel to 80% petroleum diesel fuel). Unlike ethanol, however, much higher concentrations of biodiesel can be blended without requiring a modification to the engine.
