1 Biodiesel “ There are so many different grades of biodiesel that people will be confused as to what to use and therefore will not buy it.“ By: Deanne Young, Jamie Henderson, Maureen Dunn, and Nancy Ta

2 Presentation Overview Overview of Biodiesel Grades Blends Where confusion lies

3 Overview Where How Benefits Down side

4 Grades of (bio)diesel There are no grades of biodiesel, there are blends of biodiesel. Biodiesel is made up of diesel, which has grades.

5 Grades of Diesel

6 Blends of Biodiesel ASTM (American Society of Testing Materials) define regulations for all fuels in the US, including biodiesel blends: B100—100% Biodiesel B20—20% biodiesel and 80% petrol-diesel fuel. B5—5% biodiesel 95% petrol-diesel B2—2% biodiesel 98% petrol-diesel

7 Conclusion There are two types of grades: Grade 1 and Grade 2. Both have low sulfur content. There are three common ASTM approved blends of Biodiesel: B20, B5 and B2. B20 is the most commonly used. Confusion lies in switching between biodiesel and diesel and biodiesel use verses biodiesel grades.
