As we all become more and more aware of the increasingly urgent need to protect and heal our planet, interest in biodiesel is growing. The term “Biodiesel” covers a number of sustainable fuels (including animal fats, vegetable oils, and waste cooking oils), but public interest in the concept of sustainable, green fuels is by no means put off by the diversity and complexity of the matter. Indeed, as biodiesel science progresses, and people become more aware of its potential, demand for biodiesel-enabled vehicles is growing, Until recently, the call for biodiesel was considered a fringe call, which would not generate much profit. So manufacturers felt justified in ignoring it. However, in more recent years, growing environmental concerns have seen biodiesel pushed into the public consciousness – putting pressure on auto manufacturers to make biodiesel-compliant vehicles.
