Biodiesel is a biofuel substitute that can be used in diesel engines.

Think transport trucks, pickup trucks, and farming equipment. It can be made from plant oils, waste cooking oils, animal fats, other oils like fish and algae, all of which are generally referred to as feedstock.

Biodiesel can also be produced from cellulosic feedstock, which is agriculture and forest biomass. The technology to produce biodiesel has been around for a long time, but like solar and wind technology it’s just catching on as ways to reduce our carbon footprint expand.
