Biodiesel as an alternative energy source

The annual global yield of biomass residue exceeds 220 billion tonnes which potentially equals the energy of 60 - 80 billion tonnes of crude oil. If we find a cost-effective and practical process to convert this biomass to biodiesel or bio-gas, it can be a solution to the global demand for clean energy. On this National Biodiesel Day, REG has created this video on the importance and benefits of biodiesel.

With the huge amount of biomass available, biodiesel is an unavoidable option for the growing energy demands and mitigation of effects of climate change. Biodiesel can be produced from various sources like seeds, corn, animal fat, algae,cooking oil and so on. Hence, the resources are available in plenty, one needs to focus on efficient, and cost-effective production of biodiesel from these sources.
