FAQ: Is Biodiesel approved for use and what controls are in place for production?

Biodiesel is registered in the USA as a fuel and fuel additive with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and meets clean diesel standards established by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Pure biodiesel (B100) is designated as an alternative fuel by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the US Department of Transportation (DOT).

In Europe, there are two important standards that relate to biodiesel production and use: the Biodiesel standard EN 14214 2003 and the mineral diesel standard EN 590 2004.

They each aim to ensure that products that meet these standards are of the requisite quality.

The mineral diesel standard also aims to ensure that blended biodiesel is also up to scratch because it requires that the biodiesel which goes into the blend must first meet the Biodiesel standard.

The BioCube™ is designed to be capable of producing biodiesel that satisfies these stringent international standards given suitable quality feedstock oil.
