The tail pipe emissions from biodiesel are far more people-friendly than those from petrodiesel. They are neither carcinogenic nor mutagenic and cause far less bronchial irritation. EPA confirms that.
"Biodiesel has many advantages for the future
of South Africa in being able to strengthen our economy and create jobs.
Biodiesel is an ideal fuel for the transportation industry in our country
as it can be used in any diesel engine. Everything from food at the
supermarket to the computer that you are using is transport using diesel."
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, using pure biodiesel (B100) instead of conventional diesel reduces these emissions:
Hydrocarbons by more than 60 percent
Carbon monoxide by more than 40 percent
Particulates by more than 40 percent
EPA studies also suggest that using biodiesel reduces the numerous toxic substances present in diesel exhaust (including many cancer-causing compounds).
Biodiesel also presents fewer health risks during storage and handling.
The fuel is 100 percent biodegradable if spilled and has roughly the
same toxicity as table salt, making it especially attractive for use
in sensitive natural environments.
Fact: South Africa consumes about 25-billion litres of fuel a year, of which about 40% or 10-billion litres is diesel.
