INDIANBIEODIESEL -A FUEL OF FUTURE
Indianbiodiesel is a safe alternative fuel to replace traditional petroleum diesel. It has high-lubricity, is a clean-burning fuel and can be a fuel component for use in existing, unmodified diesel engines. This means that no retrofits are necessary when using Indianbiodiesel fuel in any diesel powered combustion engine. It is the only alternative fuel that offers such convenience. Indianbiodiesel acts like petroleum diesel, but produces less air pollution, comes from renewable sources, is biodegradable and is safer for the environment. Producing Indianbiodiesel fuels can help create local economic revitalization and local environmental benefits. Many groups interested in promoting the use of biodiesel already exist at the local, state and national level.
Indianbiodiesel is designed for complete compatibility with petroleum diesel and can be blended in any ratio, from additive levels to 100 percent Indianbiodiesel. In the United States today, Indianbiodiesel is typically produced from soybean or rapeseed oil or can be reprocessed from waste cooking oils or animal fats such as waste fish oil. Because it is made of these easily obtainable plant-based materials, it is a completely renewable fuel source.
Indianbiodiesel can be considered a new technology, taking into account all the years consumers have had to settle for traditional diesel.
1.Indianbiodiesel is not harmful to the environment. A vehicle tends to pollute the environment and emits harmful gasses, if injected with HSD whereas if the engine is using Indianbiodiesel it emits no harmful gasses rather keeps the environment pollution free.
2.Indianbiodiesel may not require an engine modification. Indianbiodiesel can be blended with diesel so as to improve the efficiency of the engine without any hassles.
3.Indianbiodiesel is cheap. You can even make Indianbiodiesel in your backyard. If your engine can work with biodiesel fuel alone, then you really need not go to the gas station to buy fuel. You can just manufacture some for your own personal use.
4.Any Vehicle using Indianbiodiesel has very low idle stating noise. It is noted that biodiesel has a Cetane number of over 100. Cetane number is used to measure the quality of the fuel’s ignition. If your fuel has a high Cetane number, you can be sure that what you get is a very easy cold starting coupled with a low idle noise.
5. Indianbiodiesel is cost effective because it is produced locally.
Indianbiodiesel as a fuel not only helps reducing the pollution, reduces health hazards and gives our society A CLEANER AND GREENER TOMORROW.
Advantages of using Indianbiodiesel
1. Easy to use:
Indianbiodiesel can be used in existing engines, vehicles and infrastructure with practically no changes.Indian biodiesel can be pumped, stored and burned just like petroleum diesel fuel, and can be used pure, or in blends with petroleum diesel fuel in any proportion. Power and fuel economy using Indianbiodiesel is practically identical to petroleum diesel fuel, and year round operation can be achieved by blending with diesel fuel.
2. Power & Performance:
The degree to which fuel provides proper lubrication is its lubricity. Low lubricity petroleum diesel fuel can cause premature failure of injection system components and decreased performance. Indianbiodiesel provides excellent lubricity to the fuel injection system.
3. Emissions & Greenhouse Gas Reduction:
Indianbiodiesel provides significantly reduced emissions of carbon monoxide, particulate matter, unburned hydrocarbons, and sulfates compared to petroleum diesel fuel. Additionally, Indianbiodiesel reduces emissions of carcinogenic compounds by as much as 85% compared with petrodiesel. When blended with petroleum diesel fuel, these emissions reductions are generally directly proportional to the amount of Indianbiodiesel in the blend.
Carbon dioxide produced from Indianbiodiesel combustion does not contribute to new emissions of CO2 as it is part of the carbon cycle. Closed carbon cycle – 80% reduction in CO2. Example: growing oil feedstock consumes four to six times more CO2 than Indianbiodiesel exhaust.
Smog-Forming Pollutants (Ozone precursors):
Compared to diesel,Indianbiodiesel effects on engine exhaust are in the table that follows: B100 refers to neat Indianbiodiesel; B20 refers to 20%Indianbiodiesel blended with 2 Diesel:
HC 36.73% reduction with B100 (2) 7.35% reduction with B20
CO 46.23% reduction with B100 9.25% reduction with B20
PM 68.07% reduction with B100 13.61% reduction with B20
SOx(3) 100% reduction with B100 20% reduction with B20
The above data on HC, CO, PM, and SOx is based on data reported by Dr. Groboski in 1998 paper “Combustion of Fat and Vegetable Oil Derived Fuels in Diesel Engines.”OAE-BIO3 formulation with low-NOx additive will bring NOx to diesel baseline. Data on effect of Indianbiodiesel on NOx is scattered. OAE testing of in-use diesel engines showed NOx reductions of 10-18% compared to diesel baseline. Indianbiodiesel use in in-use diesel engines results in cleaning of injectors which restores the original spray patter (also improves fuel economy), resulting in lowering of NOx. Testing of heavy-duty laboratory engines by research scientist has not shown the reduction levels achieved with the in-use engines. If low- NOx is desired, OAE also offers several other proprietary engine technologies to reduce NOx by 30-40%. Contact OAE representative for low- NOx options. The above data is with laboratory engines (also called golden engines). In use engines tested by OAE showed NOx reductions of 18% with the use of biodiesel due primarily to the fact that biodiesel cleaned injectors and lines resulting in better spray pattern.
Ozone forming potential of Indianbiodiesel HC is 50% less for B100, 10% less for B20.
Calculated by OAE due to no sulphur in Indianbiodiesel.
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) reduction w/B20 80% reduction w/B100 13%
NPAH (nitrated PAH)
reduction w/B20 90% reduction w/B100 50%
Grown, Produced and Distributed Locally:
Worldwide, energy security is becoming a hot topic in government and society. Nearly every country in the world depends on imports of various forms of fossil fuel energy, including oil, coal and natural gas. Without a steady supply of affordable energy a country’s economy grinds to a halt, with no fuel for transportation, energy to run power plants and factories, or heat homes. Indianbiodiesel can improve energy security wherever it is produced in several ways:
Domestic Energy Crops:
The dependence on foreign oil supplies is reduced to a large extent because of the presence of feedstock and other sources that are used to produce Indianbiodiesel.
Increased Refining Capacity:
Today Indianbiodiesel is produced in refineries which are locally made, reducing the dependence on other countries for importing finished expensive products.
Toxicity, Biodegradability, Safety & Recycling:
Occasional spills of the fuel do occur in and around the establishment of the Processing Plant. The impact of it on plants, animals and human beings should be considered. Indianbiodiesel is less toxic than diesel and is biodegradable. All these attributes make Indianbiodiesel less harmful to the environment.
Non-Toxic: Indianbiodiesel is considered to be less toxic as it originates from vegetable oil.
Biodegradability: In both soil and water, Indianbiodiesel degraded at a rate 4 times faster than regular diesel fuel, with nearly 80% of the carbon in the fuel being readily converted by soil.

Safe and Stable Fuel:
Due to the existence of low volatility nature of Indianbiodiesel, it is easier and safe to handle than petroleum. The danger of accidental ignition increases when the fuel is being stored, transported, or transferred because of high energy content in all liquid fuels. The possibility of having an accidental ignition is related to the temperature at which the fuel will create enough vapors to ignite, known as the flash point temperature. The lower the flash point of a fuel is, the lower the temperature at which the fuel can form a combustible mixture. Indianbiodiesel has a flash point of over 2660 F, meaning it cannot form a combustible mixture until it is heated well above the boiling point of water.
The resources that are used to produce Indianbiodiesel are locally available. The in-house production of Indianbiodiesel provides host of economic benefits for the local communities.
Creation of more employment, Jobs created for feedstock farming and/or collection.
Skilled jobs created for Indianbiodiesel production and distribution.(Engineers,Technicians etc.)
Generation of Income for the local feedstock producers and refiners.
Viability of Indianbiodiesel Production:
Indianbiodiesel Processing Plant Operators who have a Multi Feedstock Plant function with a competitive edge over others because of the fact that their plant can run on variety of feedstock easily available in the local market. Multi Feedstock Plant operators are less sensitive to Price Fluctuations because they can choose from a range of easily available feedstock that are used to produce Indianbiodiesel.
A win-win situation is one in which all the participants can profit from it in one way or the other. For instance here the Indianbiodiesel Producer and the Farmers can both earn profit and continue to operate in a successful market with the flexibility of feedstock. Hence it leads to A WIN WIN SITUATION for all the participants
