World Energy Alternatives, one of the country’s largest biodiesel companies, has partnered with Olympian Inc. to offer pure biodiesel at Olympian’s CFN filling station in downtown San Francisco.
Produced from renewable resources such as soybeans or recycled cooking oil from restaurants, biodiesel can be used in any standard, unmodified diesel engine either in pure form (B100) or blended at any proportion with petroleum diesel.
Research conducted at the University of California-Davis demonstrates that the cancer-causing potential of biodiesel particulate matter is 80% less than that of standard No. 1 or No. 2 diesel fuel, said World Energy.
