Creating a renewable future
Bio based renewable fuels have steadily increased in global prominence. Biofuels are produced from natural feedstocks such as vegetable oils and animal fats for bio diesel, and corn, wheat, sugar cane or biomass for bioethanol.
Rising global energy demand, increased reliance on liquefied fuels and dwindling stocks of crude oil have led to a need for renewable fuel sources. Bio derived fuels can enhance the security of our energy supply and provide substantial environmental and economic benefits.
While renewable fuels offer significant benefits, there are also industry concerns with the purity, blending, transport and storage of these fuels.
When utilizing bio derived fuels we must ensure that there is no detrimental impact on equipment, operations or the industry fuel distribution infrastructure.
Generally, as with petroleum fuels, many of the industry issues with bio fuels can be addressed with the use of appropriate fuel additives.
Fuel additives improve and correct issues with biofuel storage stability, low temperature operability, related corrosion issues, and also minimize deposit formation in combustion systems.
