With our depleting oil resources becoming more of a reality due to our heavy consumption of fuel in our vehicles and the growing number of vehicles in the world, we are searching for other methods of refuelling our cars. There are different energy sources that are being researched such as the use of electricity to replace fuel in our cars and biodiesel which is made of used sunflower oil.
What does the future hold for us? We use our fuel resources so often that the planet cannot keep up with our increasing demand. Electricity is good fuel resource but it is also one that is depleting so much that we have to find other methods of generating electricity. Electricity generating methods include that of hydro energy and solar power. Both are great natural resources that are constantly available. Biodiesel is the other fuel resource that is already being used in certain vehicles as an alternative to diesel fuel. Biodiesel fuel is produced after much used sunflower oil is collected from various restaurants, cafés and households. The sunflower oil is then put through a process of conversion in order to make it suitable as a fuel source for our diesel vehicles. Such vehicles don’t have to convert their engines to use biodiesel. They simply replace the standard diesel with the new biodiesel when refilling their fuel tanks and drive on as usual. This makes it much easier for the vehicle owner to convert to biodiesel as their daily activities are not affected and there are no additional costs of converting the vehicle. All you have to do is find a supplier nearby that you could purchase bulk biodiesel from and you can continue on your merry way. You can find a supplier by searching online for one that is within your area. The cost of this type of fuel is also much lower than the standard diesel because it is usually produced within your country so there are no extra import costs associated with the fuel. Thus the suppliers can keep the costs low and very competitive versus conventional diesel.
There is a future for biodiesel fuel and it will become part of our lives as we replace it with the new fuel. This is already happening today as there are biodiesel fuel suppliers that convert the sunflower oil and have a ready-to-use product on the market. There are certain companies that are already running their fleet of trucks on biodiesel. So the answer is yes, biodiesel is a part of our future. It is part of our present.
