Testing for Biodiesel (B-100) ASTM D6751

 

What is Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is a diesel fuel made from resources including vegetable oils or recycled sources. Unlike fossil based diesel, these resources are renewable and include surplus vegetable oils and waste products. B-100 Biodiesel is completely biodegradable and non-toxic to plants, animals and humans. Biodiesel has been our country's fastest growing fuel during the 21st century because it reduces exhaust emissions in existing diesel engines, preserves energy resources, cleans the air and supports the farm economy.

For the full ASTM D6751 testing package, we require submission of 2 gallons of product.
