Biofuel- Biodiesel Feedstock



BIODIESEL FEEDSTOCK – DEFINITION, GLOSSARY, DETAILS – OILGAE
oilgae.com

Refers to the starting products for biodiesel production. Examples of biodiesel feedstock are: Palm, Soybeans, Algae etc. from which oil can be derived which in turn is used to produce biodiesel.Links Biodiesel feedstock types – A variety of biolipids (Biolipds are lipids from biological sources. Lipids are a class of organic compounds essential for the structure and function of living cells, fats are a subset of lipids, belonging to a subcategory of lipids called triglycerides) can be used to produce biodiesel. The main plants whose oils have been considered as feedstock for bio-fuel are: soybean oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil & jatropha oil. Others in the contention are mustard, hemp, castor oil, waste vegetable oil, and in some cases, even algae. There is ongoing research into finding more suitable crops and improving oil yield…Learn more>>     oilgae.com

What Makes Biodiesel From Algae So Exciting?
by Stefani Newman

…More than 100,000 different species of plantlike organisms belong the algae family. They come in various forms and colors, from tiny protozoa floating in ponds to huge bunches of seaweed inhabiting the ocean. Leafy kelp, grassy moss and fungus growing on rocks are all forms of algae. You may even see algae in different colors such as red, green and brown. Algae are easy to grow and can be manipulated to produce huge amounts without disturbing any natural habitats or food sources. Algae are easy to please — all they need are water, sunlight and carbon dioxide….Learn more>>  science.howstuffworks.com

OLIVE OIL

Biodiesel from Olives, Olive Oil as Bio-diesel, Biofuel – Reference & Resources
It has been proven that Olive Oil can produce biodiesel, however, it is unlikely that this crop will be a sustainable candidate for biodiesel, given the opportunity costs of the use of its oil in other segments, and the cost. One interesting area has been the use of waste olive oil for Biodiesel production….Learn more>>

Unfortunately, a perfect storm of poor policy choices led soy biodiesel production to increase by 45 percent in 2013, which represents about 30 percent of the soybean oil produced in the U.S. Now the EPA has decided to take a breather for 2014 and 2015, which makes good sense.

VEGETABLE OIL

Vegetable Oil is a feedstock like animal fat used to produce renewable or biodiesel fuel. Also with the use of waste vegetable oil (WVO) unlike all the other promising feedstocks for biomass energy, vegetable oil does use food crops, but only ones which were turned into vegetable oils, used, and discarded as no longer suitable for human consumption. Many fast food restaurants go through hundreds of gallons of vegetable oil each week, and this oil is simply thrown out into the trash. It can be filtered and then modified to make renewable diesel or biodiesel.
