A one-stop online shop -www.biodieselsolutions.co.uk - has been launched for makers of biodiesel. The website carries over 150 product lines from whole bioprocessor systems to valves and fittings.
Biodiesel Solutions managing director Matthew Barnes said: “We wanted to make it easy for everyone including beginners to buy what they need to start making their own biodiesel.”
As well as delivering biodiesel systems the company can install equipment and provide operator training so the fuel can be made straight away.
The website provides information on the economics of biodiesel production, including a breakdown of costs. And the company offers free delivery on orders over £50.
All that is needed in the production of biodiesel is new or used vegetable oil, methanol, caustic soda, electricity and tap water. Heavily used cooking oil can also be used.
As well as the environmental benefits, biodiesel also helps decrease maintenance costs and reduce engine wear due to its lubricating and engine cleaning properties.
