About Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel produced from vegetable oils and animal fats. Its chemical definition is that of a methyl or ethyl ester, obtained from a chemical process called transesterification. In Brazil, Biodiesel has been regulated since 2005 and is used to fuel heavy fleets, agricultural machinery and power generators, among others.

Biodiesel and Fossil Diesel

Biodiesel can partially replace the use of fossil diesel in engines. The mixture of Biodiesel and Diesel is known by the letter B followed by the percentage of biodiesel added. Since 2021, the Federal Government has set a blend of 10% biodiesel in commercial diesel, also known as B12. Find out how we can sustainably fuel your business.
