33 States Want More Biodiesel

Tax credits expired, bills for increased nationwide use of biodiesel failed, and the unset RFS volumes, it is safe to say the last 12 months have been hard on the biodiesel industry. However, there has never been more support for the biofuels industry than there is today. From grassroots organizations, businesses, to most recently a group representing 33 state governors, there are a lot of people and organizations pushing to increase the blending mandates for biodiesel and certain kinds of ethanol.

“Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R), the leaders of the Governors’ Biofuels Coalition, said potential decreases in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volumes for biodiesel and cellulosic ethanol could hurt the nascent waste biofuel industry.”

The full article is available here: http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/219560-governors-ask-for-higher-biodiesel-ethanol-mandates

Also as discussed in the article, many states now recognize the economic boost that bio fuels provide. Bio fuels stimulate job growth in agriculture and transportation as well as the bio fuel industry. AS pointed out in the article: “The governors said the expanding industry that produces biofuel from waste products — also known as advanced biofuels — could bring millions of gallons of clean fuel, create thousands of jobs and decrease reliance on imported oil, among other benefits.”

When one considers all of the support the biodiesel industry is receiving it seems likely that biodiesel will again gain momentum and become a larger player in fueling America. However, it is important remember that biodiesel is easy to produce and that production should not be limited to large industrial production plants. Anyone individual, business, or farming operation can produce their own fuel!

Biodiesel Helps Cities Meet Upcoming Water Standards

Like engine emissions regulations, water purity regulations for municipalities are due to get tighter in the upcoming years. One part of the Federal Water Purity Guidelines, to be enacted in 2020, is focused on reducing the amount of cooking oils and animal fats in sewer water and water treatment facilities. In response to this upcoming regulation change many municipalities are looking at installing more extensive grease/water filtration systems, and at setting up oil/grease collection programs to stop the oils from being discarded into the sewer system. Together the programs will guarantee the municipality is in compliance with the new guidelines, but at a significant cost to the municipality and to the tax payers, which has many communities and local governments looking into biodiesel production.

That’s right biodiesel production. Once separated from the water, the grease/oils can be used to produce biodiesel which in turn can provide the municipality with cheap fuel, ultimately lowering the fuel budget and total budget, which could and should positively affect tax payers.

Sample breakdown of how biodiesel helps cities:

Municipality monthly fuel usage: 1000gallons
Total Oil Collected per month: 300 gallons (this is easily produced by 4-5 restaurants)
Cost to Produce biodiesel: $1.50/gallon
Original Monthly Cost of fuel at $3.00/gal: $3,000
Monthly Cost of Fuel after Producing 300gallons of their own Fuel: $2,550
BY PRODUCING A PORTION OF THEIR OWN FUEL THIS MUNICIPALITY WOULD SAVE $450/MONTH!!

It is easy to see how this model can save a municipality a lot of money while making sure they are meeting the new guidelines on water purity.

Here are two city’s that are pursuing this model right now!

Using Biodiesel in Winter: The Cold Clear Solution

Sadly winter is fast approaching, but that is no reason for concern for an educated biodiesel producer! While many biodiesel producers gripe about using biodiesel in winter, the truth is that running biodiesel in winter is no different than running regular #2 diesel fuel in winter!

Cold Clear Technology

Cold Clear Filtration


Now, we have to remember that there are two blends of #2 diesel fuel—a summer blend and a winter blend. The summer blend is slightly cruder and will have a gelling temperature above zero, a winter blend on the other hand will be more refined and have a gelling temperature close to 30degrees below zero.

This process directly relates to what biodiesel producers should be doing for their winter blends of biodiesel. The biodiesel should be more pure and refined than a summer blend of biodiesel. The most efficient and cost effective way of doing this is to run all of the biodiesel you produce for winter through a Cold Clear Filtration System. A Cold Clear System is a series of 3 towers composed of 12 filters and removes the remaining impurities that a water wash or dry wash filtration system will miss. By removing any remaining impurities the cold filter plug point of the biodiesel can be reduced by up to 50degrees!

The second thing a biodiesel producer must do for his winter blend of biodiesel is to blend his fuel with #1 diesel fuel. If the winter temperature in your area is between 0 and 30 degrees Fahrenheit the biodiesel should be blended 70% biodiesel with 30% #1 diesel fuel. If your average winter temperature is lower than 0degrees Fahrenheit you should blend 50% biodiesel with 50% #1 diesel fuel.

Follow these helpful tips and you will be running your biodiesel with confidence all winter long!!

ASTM Biodiesel: Time for a Facelift?

Biodiesel has been around for a long time, in fact what we today would call “biodiesel” ran the first diesel engines ever made! That’s right, Rudolph Diesel ran the some of the diesel engines on peanut oil, petroleum diesel fuel did not come began the standard for “diesel” fuel until years after the invention of the diesel engine! So if organic oils were the first fuels to be run in diesel engines, why did the world switch to petroleum based fuels?

During the early 1900s petroleum was widely available and CHEAP, which made it ideal for fuel and so Diesel’s engine was slightly modified to run on petroleum based fuel; however, during and after World War 2 vegetable oils would again gain momentum as a fuel. However, as the military’s use of diesel fuel subsided and fuel prices went down, biodiesel would again take a back seat to its petroleum counter part. This would be biodiesel’s trend for the next half century until 1993.

http://gasfreeearth.com/

http://gasfreeearth.com/

In 1993 biodiesel started to be used by the Bus Industry in the United States as a cheaper and cleaner alternative to petroleum diesel fuel. Over the next decade biodiesel continually gained and lost momentum in the U.S. market, but little by little started to get a foothold in the U.S. Eventually biodiesel was blended with petroleum diesel to give us the current 5%biodiesel 95%diesel fuel blend that is common across the U.S. But this is only the tip of the ice-berg, with more support to lesson America’s dependence on foreign oil, biodiesel, has continued to gain the interest of individuals, businesses, and communities nationwide.

Curious about the role Biodiesel will play in the Future? Check out the following article from Biodiesel Magazine about the current ASTM amendments being debated in Washington.

Biodiesel, Crude biodiesel and Glycerol

As the soybean harvest in the U.S. draws close, the Biodiesel Industry is eagerly awaiting the RFS biodiesel volumes for 2014. That’s right, 9 months into 2014 Washington has still not set the RFS volumes, but it is not for lack of encourage from the biodiesel industry.From grass roots movements to lawmakers to politicians, biodiesel had more support in the last year than it has ever had before; however, what this support will do for the industry is yet to be seen. AS Anne Steckel points out in this article from the biodiesel Magazine:

Annual Independence Day Sale!!

As Independence Day nears the team at U.S. Freedom Bio Fuels, as Americans, are both proud and thankful for the many freedoms we enjoy everyday! And as many of our thoughts turn to barbecues, family vacations, warm sunshine and refreshing watersport fun we would like to take a little time to talk to you about the freedoms we have and why our great country gained Independence. And along the way thank the millions of veterans who have maintained our freedoms and guaranteed our rights. detail_of_american_flag_190419

The Year was 1775, the cost of living in America was a high. England had placed taxes on goods coming to the American Colonies and the American Colonists were watching their hard earned money leave their pockets and travel thousands of miles overseas to benefit England. The American Colonists decided this was not fair, and that their money should stay in their pockets, community, and country; not go to England, which cared very little for the quality of life in the Americas. The American Revolution began. One year later America declared its independence, and eight years later in 1783 America’s Independence was won.

What did Independence mean for the first Americans? What does it mean for us today?

Here is what I think–Independence, when the actions of a individual, community, or nation are solely responsible for that individual’s, community’s, or nation’s quality of life. Simply put-you are not dependent or oppressed by anyone else, you are in charge of your future. The first American’s fought and got Americans the right to control their own futures, and millions since have continued to fight so that all Americans continue to have this right.

For Americans today I believe Independence means the same thing, but the fragility of our independence is less recognizable. The world has become more interconnected and all countries rely on other countries for certain resources, which ultimately results in a partial loss of independence. However, I do think we are losing some of our independence-lets look at the fuel market for example.

Every year gas and diesel fuel go up and down when there is conflict in the Middle East. AS of today prices are higher because of the rise in military action in Iraq. Now I understand that Iraq is a major oil producer and we are DEPENDENT on its oil, but do we need to be? Can we lesson our dependence? I believe we can. Renewable fuels such as biodiesel offer huge opportunities to lesson our dependence on foreign oil.

Like our forefathers, it is time we as individuals once again, claim American’s Independence, not from the British, but from foreign oil. Look at producing your own fuel or fuel for your business or community! It all will help lesson America’s dependence on foreign oil because right now American’s are literally at the mercy of the Middle East and the oil coming from that area. Moreover, not only is our hard earned money going out of our country, but it is going to the countries where many of the extremist groups that are trying to harm America and Americans reside. SO I say and at U.S. Freedom Bio Fuels, we say it is time to gain back some of America’s Independence! To help encourage others to join the movement we are offering our 7th Annual Independence Day Sale:

SAVE $1990.56 on our BD65 Biodiesel Processor!

SAVE $2469.97 on our BD65AF Animal Fat Processor!

SAVE $1748.00 on a BD40LP Low Profile Biodiesel Processor!

SAVE $836.85 on a Freedom Methanol Recovery System

THIS SALE WILL END JULY 8 SO CALL US TODAY AND SAVE FOR A LIFETIME: 888-235-7792

Diesel Prices Outpace Gasoline: Averages 50cents/gallon More Than Gas

Today crude hit a 2014 high at $100.68 per barrel, which means we can expect higher fuel prices as we slowly transition from winter to summer. This news started me thinking—Remember when diesel fuel was cheaper than gasoline? Why the change? So after a little digging I stumbled upon this article:

 

Diesel Prices Topping Gas by 56 cents a Gallon Nationally

By Joe Taschler of the Journal Sentinel
Jan. 17, 2014

Somewhere along the way, the math changed.

Diesel fuel was once a less-expensive alternative to gasoline, but the roles have reversed in recent years. Diesel has become more expensive than gas, and that all but eliminates the savings from diesel’s generally higher efficiency over gasoline.

The situation stems from factors including increased worldwide demand, bitter cold weather and an improving global economy, petroleum market-watchers say, and it has implications for anything that is shipped by truck or rail.

In other words, just about everything.

Gas and Diesel Prices

http://media.jrn.com/images/DIESEL18G.jpg

“(Diesel) is a big deal,” said Jim Ritterbusch, an oil market industry analyst in Galena, Ill.

Across the United States on Friday, a gallon of diesel fuel cost $3.86, according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report. A gallon of gasoline was 56 cents cheaper at $3.30 a gallon. In Wisconsin, the difference was even bigger, with gasoline matching the national average price while diesel was averaging $3.91.

Consumers are increasingly paying attention.

“There are a lot more customers nowadays who weigh the pros and cons” of diesel vs. gasoline, said Brad Baker, a sales representative at Badger Truck Center in Milwaukee. “(Diesel) costs more. It never used to.

“More and more people are putting a pencil to it and saying, ‘I can get by with a gasoline engine,’” he added. “We’ve gone through this conversation quite a bit the last three or four years for sure — more than we used to.

“It’s something we deal with every day.”

There are nearly 50,000 light-duty diesel vehicles — cars, SUVs and light trucks — in Wisconsin, according to dieselforum.org, a trade association for companies that manufacture diesel-powered products.

Diesel vehicles are 30% to 35% more fuel efficient than gasoline-powered vehicles, according to fueleconomy.gov.

Right now, though, “All the gains you scoop up with the much better mileage, you are losing on the pump price,” Ritterbusch said.
Higher global demand

Global demand for diesel is among the factors driving prices higher, with U.S. refineries often exporting the fuel wherever in the world it can fetch the best price. As Europe emerges from recession and developing countries in Asia and Latin America have continued to grow, so has demand for diesel.

“Diesel exports have probably quadrupled in the past three or four years,” Ritterbusch said. “It’s almost a situation where gasoline has become a byproduct of this quest to produce diesel, load it on cargo ships and ship it out.”

The U.S. exports about 3.5 times as much diesel as gasoline.

Ritterbusch said he’s seen instances of diesel being shipped as far away as Asia.

Meanwhile, soaring heating oil use amid bitter cold temperatures this winter in the U.S. also has affected diesel, Ritterbusch said. Among refined crude oil products, heating oil is closely related to diesel fuel, and soaring home heating demands — especially on the East Coast — have led to higher prices.

“Diesel fuel is the pre-eminent fuel in the world now,” said DuWayne Marshall, an independent trucker from Watertown. “When I started trucking, diesel was probably 20 cents a gallon cheaper than gasoline. But it’s been on a steady climb since probably the late 1980s.”

It’s been worse. Diesel has fallen from its highest prices touched in 2008, he said, and it costs about $800 to fill his truck these days, compared with $1,000 a few years back.

He follows prices carefully. “I put a lot of thought into it,” he said. “I have to watch my price per gallon.”

As in other trucking and shipping businesses, fuel prices have forced Marshall to add fuel surcharges to every load he hauls.

The surcharges slide up or down depending on the cost of fuel.

American consumers ultimately pay those costs.

“The consumer bears much of the increase during a spike, and they receive the benefit of a drop in prices as well,” said Dan McMackin, a spokesman for Atlanta-based UPS.
Volatility

The price increase also is part of a pattern that has seen volatile price swings occurring regularly in petroleum markets.

“I’ve been here 28 years, and in the early years, fuel was very predictable and rarely moved,” said Tim Kreilkamp, one of the family co-owners of Kreilkamp Trucking in Allenton. “It moved pennies one way or the other, but it seems since 2004 when the ultra-low-sulfur diesel was introduced, the cost increased over gasoline and the volatility rose.”

Changes in emissions standards also have affected diesel.

“The fuel economy isn’t as good as it used to be because of all the emissions equipment that has been added,” Baker said. “That’s added to the cost of an engine, and the mileage has decreased.”

But the cleaner aspects of diesel also have made it more popular, which increases its demand.

“It’s becoming a very, very clean product,” Ritterbusch said. Gone are the days when diesel cars belched acrid exhaust from their tailpipes. “It was so dirty, the bumpers would turn black. You don’t see that anymore.”

And, despite the higher pump costs, diesel vehicles offer advantages, especially when heavy loads need to be hauled, Baker said.

“If you are pulling a decent-size backhoe every day, then yeah, there’s no question,” Baker said. “You need that low-end torque that diesel offers in order to get that load going.

“Then it doesn’t matter how much it costs because that’s what you have to have.”

Going forward, Ritterbusch expects diesel prices to remain steady.

“It’s the old good news-bad news situation,” he said. “The good news is they aren’t going to go higher. The bad news is we’re not going to see much of a price downdraft.”

Biodiesel, Glycerin, Water, and Waste Vegetable Oil Quality Testing

At U.S. Freedom Bio Fuels we believe in the production of high quality biodiesel and today we want to share some quick tips on how small biodiesel producers can check the quality of their biodiesel. Last week we looked at how to perform a 27/3 biodiesel conversion test, this week we are going to look at a biodiesel/glycerin separation test and a biodiesel/water separation test. However, before we can produce high quality biodiesel we have to make sure that we are using a high quality feedstock. The most common problem with feedstocks is water in the raw oil, but there is a simple way to test oil for water. Here’s how:

1. Take a small clear microwavable container and fill it half full with your raw oil.
2. Place the sample in the microwave for 30 seconds and observe. Note: you may want to place a paper towel over the top of the sample to stop the oil from splattering over the inside of your microwave.
3. While the microwave is running watch to see if any bubbles forming in your oil sample. If bubbles are forming there is water in your feedstock.

Note the bubbles in the Left Sample

Note the bubbles in the Left Sample

Testing the quality of your feedstock will help ensure your oil has the potential to become high quality biodiesel. Once you have processed your oil you will be ready to perform the next 2 tests on your biodiesel.

Biodiesel Test 1: Biodiesel/Glycerin Separation Test

This test is very simple and will tell you about the quality of your biodiesel. Prior to water washing/dry washing your fuel take a sample of your fuel and place it in a glass jar. After a few minutes you should see a clear separation between the biodiesel and glycerin. THERE SHOULD NOT BE A THIRD LAYER PRESENT IN THE SAMPLE. After draining the glycerin and dry washing the fuel you can perform the same test and there should be NO glycerin present in the sample.

Biodiesel Test 2: Biodiesel/Water Separation Test

U.S. Freedom Bio Fuels Palm Oil Water Test

Note the clear separation between biodiesel (top)and the water (bottom). The biodiesel in this sample was made from virgin palm oil

The Biodiesel and Water Separation Test is yet another easy test you can try– mix your finished, dried, biodiesel with water. Shake the biodiesel and water sample in a clear bottle. IF the water settles to the bottom and there is a clear, quick, separation between the biodiesel and water, you have made quality fuel. Allow the separation to take five minutes. If the water and biodiesel do not separate evenly, and there are a lot of oil bubbles mixed with the water, or if the water is not clear, this is an indication that your fuel was not completely reacted.

How to Test Biodiesel for Quality: The 27/3 Conversion Test

27/3 Conversion Test

Anyone in the producing biodiesel has heard of the biodiesel ASTM Specifications, and while many home producers do not know the exact standards for biodiesel or have a fully equipped lab to test their biodiesel there are certain simple test that can to done to find out the quality of their biodiesel. One such test is called a 27/3 conversion test and while simple it will tell a producer a lot about the quality of their biodiesel. However, the best part of the 27/3 conversion test is that the only major supplies needed are 27 milliliters of methanol and 3 milliliters of biodiesel!

During the test the methanol will dissolve the biodiesel but will not dissolve any triglycerides. Therefore at the end of the test it is clear how much oil was converted into biodiesel and how much was left unprocessed.

Equipment List:

1. Container to measure out 27ml of methanol
2. A small container in which to put the 27ml of methanol
3. A 3ml syringe
4. Biodiesel to be test

27/3 biodiesel conversion test

http://utahbiodieselsupply.com/bioproaccessories.php

Procedure:
1. Insure the jar is 100% and dry
2. Put 27ml of room temperature methanol into a small container
3. Use the 3ml syringe to put exactly 3ml of the biodiesel under into the methanol.
4. Vigorously stir or if you have a seal-able container shake the contents for 5 seconds
5. If the biodiesel completely dissolves into the methanol and no oil settles out on the bottom of the container you have very high conversion biodiesel

The test results are easy to see in the picture to the right: the container on the right shows undissolved triglycerides (unreacted feedstock) that was present in the biodiesel sample, while the sample on the left shows that the biodiesel had a high conversion as no unreacted oil has settled to the bottom of the container.
