Biodiesel Process

Want to know how biodiesel is made?

Our goal is to make a fuel that burns far cleaner than fossil fuel.Once processed, biodiesel can power any diesel engine without modification, unlike pure vegetable oil, which only runs in vehicles with retrofitted engines. Biodiesel is even good for your engine. Because it’s a better lubricant, it extends engine life and requires less maintenance.

Perfect Circle Renewable Energy makes millions of gallons of biodiesel a year, and is designed to accommodate greater production over time. Much of the process involves removing water from the recycled oil and cleaning the biofuel to meet required standards. The only dangerous part of the process happens in an unassuming reactor, where oil is combined with methoxide to force the chemical reaction that turns the oil into a combustible material.
