grades of bio diesel
Grades of (bio)diesel
  • There are no grades of biodiesel, there are blends of biodiesel.
  • Biodiesel is made up of diesel, which has grades.
blends of biodiesel
Blends of Biodiesel
  • ASTM (American Society of Testing Materials) define regulations for all fuels in the US, including biodiesel blends:
    • B100—100% Biodiesel
    • B20—20% biodiesel and 80% petrol-diesel fuel.
    • B5—5% biodiesel 95% petrol-diesel
    • B2—2% biodiesel 98% petrol-diesel
conclusion
Conclusion
  • There are two types of grades: Grade 1 and Grade 2. Both have low sulfur content.
  • There are three common ASTM approved blends of Biodiesel:
    • B20, B5 and B2.
    • B20 is the most commonly used.
  • Confusion lies in switching between biodiesel and diesel and biodiesel use verses biodiesel grades.
