Biodiesel allows you to reduce your carbon emissions by up to 70% vs standard petrodiesel.
Making Omani biodiesel using local feedstocks also means that value and the carbon credit stays in Oman and fuels the growth of our renewable energy sector.
Biodiesel produced from Used Cooking Oil has a lifetime carbon footprint of 437 gm/l of CO2 compared with regular diesel footprint of 3128g/l. This means that for each liter of diesel you replace with biodiesel saves 2,691 grams of CO2 emissions.
Using biodiesel instead of petrodiesel will significantly reduce unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter from tail pipe emissions. It will also virtually eliminate sulfur oxides and sulfates which are major contributors to acid rain. Nitrogen oxide emissions may slightly increase, but can be remedied with newer low-emission diesel engines. Learn more.
Yes, both for your people and your engine. It has a lower flash point, virtually no sulpher, is non toxic and is better for the environment.
Biodiesel can actually extend the life of your engine. Biodiesel has superior lubricating properties that reduce the wear of vital engine parts.
Biodiesel is used all over the world. In the US, UK and Europe it is mandated by law to have a biodiesel component in diesel.
No, biodiesel is a drop in fuel requiring no changes to existing equipment. Biodiesel is a great cleaner so you may need to change your fuel filter earlier for the first few times, but there is no other impact to machinery
Yes, you can use biodiesel and diesel fuel interchangeably, as well as blended.
Wakud produces 100% Biodiesel, however, this biodiesel is blended with regular diesel to produce a blend. A B5 blend will have 5% biodiesel and 95% regular diesel, whereas a B10 blend will have 10% biodiesel and 90% biodiesel.
No, most OEMs certify their equipment for biodiesel blends between B5 and B20.
We can sell directly to the customer and also work with the major diesel marketing companies in Oman. We can cater a solution specific to your needs.
No, biodiesel is produced through a chemical process called transesterification which converts oils and fats of natural origin into fatty acid methyl esters (FAME). Combustion of vegetable oil without conversion to biodiesel will lead to soot accumulation and deposits that may lead to power loss and engine failure.
Biodiesel is made through a chemical reaction between natural oils and alcohol, followed by purification. Biodiesel can be made from nearly any naturally occurring vegetable oil or fat. The most frequently used oils by Pacific Biodiesel facilities are used cooking oil, tallow, yellow grease, poultry grease, cottonseed oil, and soybean oil.
If your car was made prior to 1993, the rubber fuel lines will probably have to be replaced. One of the major advantages of using biodiesel is the fact that it can be used in existing diesel engines without negative impacts to operating performance. Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel for heavyweight vehicles that does not require any special injection or storage modifications.
Biodiesel is a solvent. It will clear many diesel deposits that have accumulated in your fuel tank. This may cause initial fuel filter clogging but continued use of biodiesel will not cause an increased frequency of filter changes.
Vehicles running on biodiesel get virtually the same MPG rating as vehicles running on petrodiesel. Learn more.
