"Life-cycle" studies of the whole production process from sowing the seed to filling the fuel tank can show a different picture.
Industrialised agricultural production of oil crops like soy or rapeseed depends heavily on fossil-fuel inputs which must be included in the equation, and biodiesel made from these crops is not carbon-neutral.
We are open for soybeans and soybean meal
And it can easily be made from a common waste product: used cooking oil.
Biodiesel is a much cleaner fuel than conventional fossil-fuel petroleum diesel ("dinodiesel").
Soybean biodiesel yield reached 92.9% even from oil with high AV of 12.1 mg KOH/g. Thus, HT-Ca catalyst showed a potential practical application for direct production of biodiesel from oils with high AV without pretreatment.
