Biodeisel

By: Bre S, Kelsey B, Robert C.

Advantages:

  • renewable fuel
  • plant material (can be replenished)
  • gives off lower emissions of harmful pollutants
  • could improve air quality and reduce health problems
  • vegetable oil can be used as cooking oil then as a bio fuel.

Disadvantages:

  • lower energy density than fossil fuel
  • able to drive fewer miles
  • derived from palm oil
  • forests are home to many species of wildlife
  • palm oil producers are taking over large land where locals live and farm.

Did you know?

  • running a vehicle on a mix of biodiesel and normal diesel. (20% bio, 80% normal)
  • produces lower emissions of harmful pollutants.

Good idea to move into production?

Not really, because you'd drive fewer miles, forests are home to wildlife, and palm oil producers are taking over land where locals live and farm.
