1 Clean Cities / 1 COALITION NAME Biodiesel Overview Presenter Title E-mail Date

2 Clean Cities / 2 About Clean Cities Mission To advance the energy, economic, and environmental security of the United States by supporting local decisions to reduce petroleum use in transportation Goal Reduce petroleum use by 2.5 billion gallons per year by 2020 Replacement Reduction Elimination Accomplishments Saved nearly 3 billion gallons of petroleum since 1993 Put more than 775,000 alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) on the road Installed more than 6,600 alternative fueling stations

3 Clean Cities / 3 About Clean Cities

4 Clean Cities / 4 Biodiesel Basics Domestically produced, renewable fuel Manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, restaurant grease Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), fatty acid alkyl esters, long-chain mono alkyl esters Reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions Biodegradable and nontoxic Cleaner-burning replacement for diesel fuel

5 Clean Cities / 5 Basics: Blends Biodiesel Blends B20 contains 20% biodiesel; B100 contains 100% biodiesel B20 and higher considered alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act of 1992 B20 Compatible with nearly all diesel equipment B20 and lower-level blends don’t require equipment modifications B20 contains 1% to 2% less energy than diesel B100 Use with biodiesel-compatible materials Gels at cold temperatures Contains 8% less energy than diesel

6 Clean Cities / 6 Basics: Production

7 Clean Cities / 7 Basics: Production

8 Clean Cities / 8 Basics: Distribution

9 Clean Cities / 9 Benefits Energy Security More than 60% of U.S. petroleum imported World petroleum supplies in unstable regions Biodiesel use diversifies U.S. energy consumption Convenience, Performance, Safety Improves engine operation Provides lubricity Nontoxic; easier clean-up than diesel Less combustible than diesel Safe to handle, transport, store

10 Clean Cities / 10 Benefits Public Health and Environment Significantly lower emissions: particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), unburned hydrocarbons (HC), sulfates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

11 Clean Cities / 11 Use: Biodiesel in Vehicles Biodiesel can be used in vehicles manufactured in 1994 or later Check with manufacturer for highway vehicles manufactured in 2007 or later for blends higher than B5
