Bio-diesel Storage Tanks !!!!

March 3rd, 2011 No comments

Rising fuel cost.

With today’s fuel prices outgrowing inflation the cost of filling up our tanks is a major talking point and alternative fuels are constantly being discussed. One such fuel is bio-diesel. Bio-diesel is an alternative fuel that can be produced from straight vegetable oil, animal oil/fats, tallow and waste cooking oil.  A process called transesterification is used to convert these oils to Bio-diesel. Possible source of suitable oil comes from crops such as rapeseed, palm or soybean, rapeseed represents the greatest potential for bio-diesel production in the UK. Most bio-diesel produced at present is produced from waste  oils sourced from restaurants, chip shops  Waste vegetable oil can often be sourced for free or sourced already treated for a small price. (The waste oil must be treated before conversion to bio-diesel to remove impurities). The result is Bio-diesel a fuel that can compete with fossil diesel.  The main benefit of bio-diesel is that it can be described as ‘carbon neutral’. This means that the fuel produces no carbon in the form of carbon isdioxide. Bio-diesel is rapidly biodegradable and completely non-toxic, this mean spillages represent far less risk than fossil fuel spillages.  Petre Process Plant Ltd can supply new, used and reconditioned  bio-diesel storage tanks.
