Ekong is the owner and operator of Delaware Biofuels he has experienced many challenges from permitting to finding a suitable location for the new start up. Just goes to show you hard work and perseverance does eventually pay off. So congratulations Ekong and we wish you continued success. They made some test samples this week and I wanted to show you the product that they made with the B-500 commercial biodiesel processor 70CentsaGallon.com provided for them which is a dry wash system using Purolite macro porous resin.
Capturing momentum at the 2013 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo. The theme of this year’s conference, MOMENTUM, is aptly chosen. At 1.1 billion gallons and climbing, biodiesel has become a true force in our nation’s fuel supply. Will your business be positioned to capture that momentum in 2013? Exhibiting at the 2013 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo is sure to move you forward.

Most substantial biofuel companies have developed an internal system for the accumulation and recycling of frying oils (UFO) or waste vegetable oil (WVO) to generate biodiesel.
The product will consider various activity industries: restaurants, fast foodshops, universities as well as the domestic sector.
The renewable fuel produced from the transesterification of organic oils and is called biodiesel or methyl ester. The procedure removes and breaks bigger and more viscous glycerol estermolecules that will not combust properly in present day diesel powered engines.
Bio-diesel is the 21st century and has moved outside of experimental and niche markets straight into the main stream simply ask Willie Nelson and his Bio Willie group. Willie Nelson Supports Bio Fuel and has formed Willie Nelson Biodiesel Company to distribute his own blend of biodiesel fuel called BioWillie. Made of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent fossil diesel, or B20, BioWillie is currently available at various locations in Texas and around the Eastern Seaboard.
Biodiesel can be used in any diesel powered car or truck in pure form or mixed in any ratio with regular petroleum-diesel. Biodiesel possesses combustion characteristics very much like mineral diesel and can replace it in most uses. Much less toxic than table salt and as bio-degradable as sugar, biodiesel is most often blended with petroleum based diesel.
Biodiesel is considered a best replacement for standard fuels globally as a key transportation fuel source because it truly is environment friendly. Using it in blends extend the current non-renewable fuel supply chain infrastructure and logistics.
Biodiesel can be made from a wide range of biomass oils, such as used cooking oil (UCO) and tallow (animal fats). Methanol or Ethanol is used in conjunction with sodium hydroxide in controlled production enabling the oil-based components to be changed into fatty acid methylester (FAME).
Green Benefits of Using Reprocessed Vegetable oils for Biodiesel
Recycled vegetable oils originate from oils utilized in the hotel resort and food production sectors and in some cases household kitchens. By recycling used vegetable oil, its disposal will be avoided and underground well-water supplies and municipal sewage lines are protected. Utilizing biodiesel cuts down on most contamination pollutants from standard diesel motorstriggering a positive impact in the planet and human health.
Biodiesel is created from alternative biomass resources (vegetable oils, both virgin and recycled), which significantly reduces reliance on fossil fuels, while increasing national security and diversity of resources. The usage of biofuels will create employment and stimulate our overall economy nationally not in overseas countries around the world.
