Biodiesel is a renewable source produced from algae, oily plants, recycled cooking oils, agricultural feedstock, and animal fats. It has low toxic and carcinogenic aromatic carbon content. Some of the most commonly used plants for biodiesel production include soybeans and oil palm. Biodiesel is easy to use, non-toxic, biodegradable, and free of sulfur compounds and aromatics. It is mostly used in diesel engines and generally blended with petroleum diesel fuel in various percentages. In recent years, biodiesel has gained momentum due to its extensive utilization in power generation and automotive applications.
One of the primary factors driving the market is the augmenting demand for environment-friendly fuels that can minimize Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and ensure complete combustion. Biodiesel is known to burn cleaner than fossil fuels as it does not produce sulfur as a residue or other harmful chemicals. Besides this, there is a growing demand for biodiesel in the automotive industry as it is an excellent lubricator which helps diesel engines to last longer. Apart from this, biodiesel has gained popularity as it is becoming an extremely affordable option due to the fluctuating prices of petroleum-based products. It is also an efficient alternative to petroleum diesel fuel that is capable of reducing exhaust emissions. On account of this, the usage of biodiesel in fuel applications is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. Moreover, governments of various nations are developing second-generation biofuels to provide energy security and meet the increasing energy needs, which represents another growth-inducing factor. Other than this, the European Union (EU) is increasingly supporting biodiesel production by providing subsidies and imposing mandates to reduce the dependence on foreign oil reserves. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the feedstock selection for manufacturing biodiesel are anticipated to create a favorable market outlook.
