Biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning fuel for diesel engines that has significant advantages over petroleum-derived fuel and can be obtained from a variety of "feedstocks", which include:
- Vegetable oils such as Coconut oil, Soybean, canola, rapeseed, sunflower oil, etc.
- Restaurant and other commercial frying and cooking oil waste from the kitchens.
- Animal fats such as beef tallow, lard, and rendered materials.
