SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, propyl or ethyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, animal fat (tallow[1[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodiesel#cite_note-NRA1-0|]]][2[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodiesel#cite_note-AusBiofuels-1|]]])) with an alcohol producing fatty acid esters.
Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Oil is one of the most common fossil fuels that contains a great number of hydrocarbons.
Studies have shown that with the carbon that is already in our atmosphere has been used to produce tons of hydrocarbons. It was being taken out by the plant, then hydrocarbons were being producted, and then being re-introduced by combustions. Therefore, by beginning to use the biofuels we will not be putting anymore carbons into our atmosphere that has been under the surface, it will only be recycling the ones that was already in place.
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
Biodiesel is one of many alternative fuel options that has the potential to help reduce oil dependence and global warming pollution. But done wrong, biodiesel can actually increase global warming pollution and cause other environmental problems, such as deforestation and loss of biodiversity

Comments I liked the way Jesus made his. it provides alot of information. Doris Pineda 2nd

Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines. Biodiesel can be used alone, or blended with petrodiesel. Biodiesel can also be used as a low carbon alternative to heating oil.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Biodiesel is America’s first Advanced Biofuel. It is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that is reducing U.S. dependence on imported diesel, creating green jobs and improving our environment. It is made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources including agricultural oils, recycled cooking oil and animal fats and meets the strict specifications of ASTM D6751. * Domestically produced from non-petroluem, renewable resources
  • Can be used in most diesel engines, especially newer ones
  • Less air pollutants (other than nitrogen oxides) and greenhouse gases
  • Biodegradable
  • Non-toxic They are better because they do not add to the net amount of co2 in the atmosphere. The crops used to produce the fuel already used co2 during photosynthesis. So they do not decrease, or add to the total amount of co2, just keep it the same.

  • Safer to handle
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
Use of blends above B5 not yet warrantied by auto makers
Lower fuel economy and power (10% lower for B100, 2% for B20)
Currently more expensive
More nitrogen oxide emissions
B100 generally not suitable for use in low temperatures
Concerns about B100's impact on engine durability

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Biodiesel is a fuel that is similar to diesel fuel and is derived from usually vegetable sources
(as soybean oil) . First known use of Biodiesel was in 1986. Biodiesel is meant to be used alone, or blended with petrodiesel. It is typically made by chemically reacting lipids. It can also be used as a low carbon alternative to heating oil.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Biodiesel is better than fossil fuels because even though it is a very solid concern, more of the problem lies with carbon dioxide factors.
Oil is one of the most common fossil fuels that contains a great number of hydrocarbons.
The hydrocarbons are known as a molecule that contains carbon and hydrogen. These two substances when they are exposed to a flame, produce energetic reactions. Which makes biodiesel better and safer than fossil fuels.
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
A problem with biodiesel is that it is currently more expensive. Disadvantages of using biodiesel produced from agricultural crops involve additional land use, as land area is taken up and various agricultural inputs with their environmental effects are inevitable. Switching to biodiesel on a large scale requires considerable use of our arable area.

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
  • Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, propyl or ethyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, animal fat (tallow)) with an alcohol.
  • A renewable fuel produced by a chemical reaction of alcohol and vegetable (or animal) oils, fats or greases. Through a refinery process called transesterification, the reaction removes the glycerin, a by-product that can harm the engines.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
It's a renewable, clean-burning diesel because it does not add the net amount of co2 in the atmosphere. The crops used to produce the fuel already used co2 during photosynthesis. So it does not decrease, or add to the total amount of co2 ; but remain the same.

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Biodiesel is a form of diesel fuel manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant greases. It is safe, biodegradable, and produces less air pollutants than petroleum-based diesel.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Bio diesel is better than fossil fuel because unlike fossil fuel bio diesel is a renewable source of energy.
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
produces sticky goo which messes up diesel injector pumps.

COMMENTS:NANCY GARCIA i understanded more what biodiesel meant.

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Biodiesel is a chemical process called transesterification. it splits into two parts alkyl esters and glycerine. The esters are the fuel. the leftover glycerine is often used to make soap and other beauty products. Biodiesel typicallyproduces about 60% less net carbon dioxideemissions than petroleum-based petroleum. this kind of oil can come from animals fats too.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Because it does not affect the environment and the waste of the biodiesel you can use it for a good, like beauty products. its more natural and vey clean, can be used for what ever oil, and even better then other kind of oils, petroleums.
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
its a very sticky oil and has problems with injector pumps.
