B100 refers to biodiesel in its purest form, composed of 100% biodiesel and no petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is a renewable, biodegradable fuel derived from various sources such as vegetable oils, animal fats, and recycled restaurant grease. It's designed to be used in standard diesel engines and is often blended with petroleum diesel. B100 represents the maximum concentration of biodiesel


While B100 can be used in many standard diesel engines, some older models might experience issues due to the solvent properties of the fuel, which can corrode certain types of rubber seals and gaskets over time. It is always recommended to check the engine manufacturer's guidelines before using B100.
B100 biodiesel produces significantly fewer carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions than traditional petroleum diesel. It's considered a more environmentally friendly fuel option.
The cost of B100 can vary depending on the region and the supply of the raw materials used to produce it. However, it's typically more expensive than traditional diesel due to higher production costs.
B100 is produced worldwide, often in regions with a significant supply of the raw materials required to produce it, such as vegetable oils and animal fats.
