What is Biodiesel?

It's a fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as vegetable oil, similar to the Diesel from petroleum

Obs: Biodiesel is not the same as vegetable oil! Vegetable oil becomes biodiesel after a chemical process.


What are the advantages of  Biodiesel?
   

Renewable It can be blended in any concentration with diesel-oil Can be used in unmodified diesel vehicles Produced from many sources
  

Edible virgin or used oil (olive, soy, corn, sunflower, ecc) Non-edible oils (castor, jatropha) Animal fat (lard)

Does not contribue to the Greenhouse gas effect

Is it really the same as Diesel?

New Holland Supports B100
8 November 2007

New Holland tested biodiesel for 2  years with no adverse effects in  performance and maintenance

New Holland Agricultural Equipment now supports the use of B100 biodiesel in all equipment with New Holland-manufactured diesel engines, including electronic injection engines with common rail technology. Overall, nearly 80% of New Holland-branded products with diesel engines are now available to operate on B100 biodiesel. New Holland has also asked other suppliers of diesel engines used in New Holland-branded products to test and approve higher levels of biodiesel. Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences is operating new, unmodified New Holland tractors on B100 biodiesel on their 1,500-acre research farm to find out what diesel equipment owners can expect to experience when they use B100. After nearly two years of use, the tractors have performed with no adverse effects in performance or maintenance, according to Glen Cauffman, the university’s manager of farm operations and services. Paul Trella, New Holland Director of Product Marketing for Under-100 HP Tractors, stressed it is essential to use high-quality biodiesel produced to ASTM D6751 standards from a reputable supplier who can offer consistent fuel quality to ensure optimum performance and engine durability.

World's First 100% Biodiesel Jet Flight
by Sami Grover, Carrboro, NC, USA on 10.12.07

First jet flight with 100%  biodiesel

Aviation history was made earlier this week in the high desert at the Reno-Stead Airport when an L-29 military aircraft piloted by Carol Sugars and Douglas Rodante succeeded in completing the world’s first jet flight powered solely by 100% biodiesel fuel. The Czechoslovakian-made aircraft is rated to fly on a variety of fuels including heating oil, making it the preferred platform for testing biodiesel in jet engines. The experimental test flights were conducted starting with a blend of jet fuel and biodiesel. The engine data was measured and the performance was evaluated and found acceptable for continued use, eventually resulting in the landmark flight using 100% renewable biodiesel fuel. According to Chief Pilot Carol Sugars who wrote and conducted the test program, “As we gradually increased the amount of biodiesel in the fuel blend, the data confirmed that the aircraft continued to perform well, giving me the confidence to transition to 100% biodiesel.” Flight tests were conducted up to an altitude of 17,000 feet showing no significant difference in performance compared to conventional jet fuel.

Bio-jet fuel tests planned
07 june 2007

Petrobras, TecBio, Boeing, Nasa and  Virgin Atlantic are testing fuels  produced from vegetable oils

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil's state oil company, plans to study and distribute bio-jet fuel made from an oilseed blend. Studies by Brazil's TecBio, Boeing Co and NASA show use of the fuel is feasible, Petrobras said yesterday at a biofuels conference in Rio de Janeiro. Experimental tests with alternative jet fuels will begin this month under the TecBio-Boeing-NASA program, Francelino da Silva Paes, a Petrobras biofuels official, said during a presentation of the company's plan. The world's first demonstration flight using the fuel is planned for next year by Boeing, General Electric Co and Virgin Atlantic Airways, he said.

San Francisco Converts Entire Diesel Vehicle Fleet to Biodiesel
by Jeremy Elton Jacquot, Los Angeles on 12. 1.07 Cars & Transportation San Francisco­US is converting his  1500 bus fleet to B20 biodiesel

San Francisco hit another major green milestone earlier this week when Mayor Gavin Newsom announced that the city had converted its fleet of approximately 1,500 diesel vehicles to run on biodiesel - a month earlier than the goal it had set in 2006. Fire engines, ambulances and MUNI buses, amongst others, will now run on B20, a blend of 20% biofuel and 80% diesel fuel. The city estimates the conversion will have the effect of displacing the equivalent of 1.2m gallons of diesel fuels every years. In addition, it will help to significantly cut down on the amount of diesel exhaust produced; the Bay Area is second only to (who else?) Los Angeles in the health impacts of diesel.

BP Bets on the Jatropha Tree

Posted By Mark Gongloff On June 29, 2007 @ 10:34 MarketWatch’s Steve Goldstein has this report on BP’s latest biofuels venture: BP announced its second biofuel venture in a week, this time inking a deal with a British firm to get fuel out of Jatropha curcas. BP and D1 Oils said they plan a 50-50 joint venture to accelerate the planting of Jatropha curcas — a drought-resistant, inedible oilseedbearing tree. It does not compete with food crops for good agricultural land or adversely impact the rainforest. BP earlier this week unveiled a $400 million plant with Associated British Foods and DuPont in which wheat will be converted into bioethanol at a plant in Saltend, Hull. D1, a U.K.-listed biodiesel producer, and BP will work together exclusively on the development of jatropha as a sustainable energy crop, including the planting of trees, harvesting jatropha grain, oil extraction and transport and logistics. BP and D1 Oils intend to invest about $160 million in the next five years. D1 said it’s going to grant BP an option to subscribe for new shares representing 16% of its enlarged share capital at an average price of 251 pence. For D1, the news was significant, pushing its shares up 8.3% to 261.75 pence in mid-morning trade. BP shares rose 0.7%, continuing recent strength in the oil sector this week.

Produção de Biodiesel a partir do Pinhão Manso pode gerar emprego e renda no Norte de Minas
Empresários da D1 Oil, indústria inglesa produtora global de biodiesel, estiveram reunidos com a secretária Elbe Brandão e com o presidente do Instituto de Desenvolvimento Integrado de Minas – Indi, Reginaldo Arcuri, para discutir a possibilidade de investimentos da indústria, na região Norte de Minas para produção do biodiesel a partir do pinhão manso. A D1 Oil é pioneira em seleção genética, plantio e produção de óleos a partir de vegetais não comestíveis. Em Minas Gerais, no município de Janaúba, a Epamig já está realizando pesquisas da cultura de pinhão manso que deve constituir-se na base de estudos visando à seleção e ao aprimoramento de variedades mais produtivas. De acordo com Paul Nicholas, representante da D1 Oil, o Jatropha curcas, conhecido popularmente como pinhão manso, tem sido reconhecido mundialmente como uma fonte alternativa renovável para a produção do biodiesel. “Além de perene e de fácil cultivo, suporta baixa densidade pluviométrica e apresenta boa conservação da semente colhida, podendo se tornar grande produtora de matéria prima como fonte opcional de combustível”, afirma. Atualmente, essa espécie não está sendo explorada comercialmente no Brasil, mas segundo o consultor Mike Lu, o pinhão manso é viável para a obtenção do biodiesel, pois produz, no mínimo, duas toneladas de óleo por hectare, levando de três a quatro anos para atingir a idade produtiva, que pode se estender por 40 anos. Para a secretária Elbe Brandão, a possibilidade do uso do óleo do pinhão manso para a produção do biodiesel, abre amplas perspectivas para o crescimento das áreas de plantio com esta cultura no norte e semi-árido mineiro.

Até 2010, o grupo controlado pelo empresário Vittorio Medioli, que também edita o jornal "O Tempo", investirá R$ 120 milhões na construção de uma planta industrial conjugada de álcool e biodiesel e na implantação de 11 mil hectares de cana e de 5 mil de pinhão-manso. A usina de biodiesel, capaz de moer 240 mil toneladas de pinhão por ano, fabricará 85 mil toneladas de biodiesel a partir do processo etílico - 14 milhões de litros de etanol serão usados na produção de um biodiesel 100% vegetal, sem a utilização de produtos minerais no processo. Na segunda etapa, prevista para 2012, a usina de álcool passará a moer 2,5 milhões de toneladas de cana, produzindo 220 milhões de litros de álcool. No biodiesel, será possível elevar a produção a 1,1 milhão de toneladas a partir de 3 milhões de pinhão. Operador de uma frota de dois mil caminhões, o grupo Sada usará os combustíveis para atingir a auto-suficiência no abastecimento de seus veículos. Para isso, construirá dois pontos de apoio para alimentar sua frota em Juazeiro (BA) e Itaubim (MG). A produção será transportada em comboios-tanque movidos a biodiesel pelo rio São Francisco até as duas cidades. No Jaíba, um duto de 13 km ligará a usina até o rio. "Nosso objetivo é a auto-suficiência. Mas como somos uma empresa de logística, pensamos na distribuição da produção", explica Vittorio Medioli, que exerceu quatro mandatos de deputado federal.
