According to the TCEQ, biodiesel ...

Microtox aquatic toxicity of petrodiesel and biodiesel blends: The role of biodiesel's autoxidation products

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Sep. 5, 2012)

The authors investigated the acute Microtox toxicity of the water accommodated fraction (WAF) of six commercial soybean biodiesel/petrodiesel blends at different oil loads. We analyzed five fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs), C10–C24 n‐alkanes, four aromatics, methanol, and total organic carbon (TOC) content. At high oil loads, the WAFs' toxicity ...

Biodiesel dispersion replaces diesel fuel

by GlobeCore Blending  (Nov. 15, 2013)

Is that possible to find substitution to traditional diesel fuel?
