Biodiesel is a plant-derived fuel that can be processed from vegetable oils and used to power diesel engines without the necessity of engine modification. The vegetable oil can be extractedfrom soybeans, rapeseed, or other oil-bearing seeds; or, alternatively, used restaurant fryer oil can be used to process a clean-burning fuel. Any of these plant-based sources result in an environmentally friendly fuel with low pollutant emissions and a much more positive economic outlook for our local communities and less dependence on foreign sources of fossil fuels.
