Biodiesel is a renewable source of energy from vegetable oil.
Biofuels play a dual role in the transport industry. Currently, they are the only direct substitutes for fossil fuels used in transportation that are widely available and can be used today in normal vehicle engines (unmodified for low-content mixes or slightly modified to accept high-content mixes). It should also be reminded that diesel is the main fuel used in Europe. Another important advantage of using biofuels is the impact they have on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Moreover, the biodiesel obtained from rapeseed helps the European Union to increase its production of feeds, while reducing the volume of imports of soybean grits. Each litre of biodiesel produced from rapeseed means about 1.5 kg feed for cows, pigs or chickens, which then become a source of food for humans.
