Introducing OnBio’s B100 (UCO) Biodiesel – EN 14214 Standard
Our B100 Biodiesel is a high quality, locally refined biodiesel made from 100% used cooking oil.
OnBio’s B100 Biodiesel meets EN 14214 for FAME biodiesels. One of the issues with biodiesel is consistent quality. OnBio only sources the highest quality biofuels and every delivery comes its own batch fuel specification certificate, proving it meets the EN 14214 standard every time.
Biodiesel not HVO
Biodiesel is very different to HVO ECO+ & ECO50 Renewable Diesels. Produced through a process known as Transesterification, which turns the waste cooking oil into a Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME).
Ultra Low Carbon – 83% CO2 Reduction
Using B100 Biodiesel made from used cooking oil (UCO) in place of red diesel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 83%* Like any fuels, burning biodiesel releases CO2 into the atmosphere, however with biofuel made from waste products like UCO, the emissions are absorbed by the next cooking oil seed crop. This massive CO2 saving takes into account the whole life cycle of the fuel from the collection process, to refining and final delivery, so CO2 absorbed by the seed crop cancels out the emissions released through using the fuel. This is not the case with fossil fuels, as it would take millions of years to the CO2 to be absorbed again.
ISCC EU Certified
Every delivery comes with its own ISCC EU certificate proving it is refined from 100% used cooking oil (UCO). This waste product is collected for restaurants and chip shops in the South East and turned into high quality biodiesel. Biodiesel made in this was is almost carbon neutral, has less harmful emissions than fossil fuels and recycles a waste product, which would otherwise be poured down drains or taken to landfill.
Biodiesel has lower harmful emissions than red diesel and can make a valuable contribution to improving local air quality and reducing carbon emissions, particularly when used at 100%. Compared with red diesel, using B100 Biodiesel at 100% reduces*
- Carbon Monoxide (CO) by 35%
- Soot & Particulate Matter (PM) by 32%
- Nitrogen Dioxide (NOx) increases by 10%
How We Use B100 Biodiesel
We use B100 Biodiesel to run OnBio’s specially adapted industrial heaters. The use of biofuels for heating is not covered by government subsidies. Therefore rather than use ECO+ & ECO50 Renewable Diesels’, which are expensive to produce, OnBio uses locally-sourced B100 Biodiesel, which is cheaper to produce and therefore a more cost effective solution for our clients.
