Summary
Biodiesel reduces emissions by more than 50 percent compared to petroleum.

Biodiesel is an alternative fuel similar to conventional or 'fossil' diesel. Biodiesel can be produced from straight vegetable oil, animal oil/fats, tallow and waste cooking oil.

National Biodiesel Day takes place on March 18 on the birthday of Rudolf Diesel, the man who invented the diesel engine and unveiled it at the World's Fair in 1900.

Diesel originally designed the engine to run on peanut oil and was a big believer in the role plant oils could play in fueling America. Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning, petroleum-free alternative to diesel that can be made from any fat or vegetable oil.

This day honors the man whose vision comes full circle as biodiesel becomes an increasingly popular fuel.
