Biodiesel and sunflower oil: what do they have in common?
I am sure during some conversation with your colleagues; have had a discussion about biodiesel and what it is. You have probably also wondered what it is made of and how it is produced. What if you can actually use it in the car you drive?
Biodiesel has been in the making for several years. A lot of research has been done and a lot of trial and error has gone into its completion. Due to the decrease in the resources we use on a daily basis, namely gasoline and diesel, we have had to look for other sources of fuel. Not to mention the high costs of gasoline and diesel today.
How are we supposed to move forward if fuel costs keep rising?
I remember the day when I only needed R300 to fill my gas tank, now it’s twice as long and it barely lasts two weeks. So it’s a huge relief that biodiesel has advanced to the point where we could use it in our own cars and trucks. Remember, however, that it is biodiesel, so you can only use it in a diesel-powered vehicle; be it a car or a truck. However, it will work just as well in your truck as conventional diesel.
Biodiesel is made from used sunflower oil. Many restaurants and cafes use sunflower oil in bulk. They could use hundreds of liters of this sunflower oil in a day. Therefore, getting rid of it is a mission for these restaurants. They are legally required to dispose of it in an ethical and healthy manner. Biodiesel producers have identified this market and thus turned this waste of used sunflower oil into a valuable resource.
Biodiesel producers collect used sunflower oil from various restaurants and take it back to their factory, where they convert the oil into a usable fuel resource that you can use in your truck. This is a great resource for truck fleet owners. You can buy biodiesel in bulk cheaply and fuel your truck fleet for a long time.
So now you have a better idea of what biodiesel is and what it is made of. You can easily use it on your diesel engine truck and save a lot of money while doing it. Make sure to buy in bulk so you have enough biodiesel. This is also a great way to save as you can keep a stock while negotiating better rates for large quantities.
