Orange, CA, January 15th, 2013 -- Biodiesel is a rapidly growing alternative fuel that is used across North America. It is formulated to be used in standard diesel engines and is typically produced by processing renewable resources.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “It is safe to use in any diesel engine and is more sustainable and far less polluting than conventional petroleum diesel. Biodiesel significantly reduces asthma-causing soot, greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide in air emissions. Along with creating less pollution, biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable and non-toxic. Produced from renewable resources such as waste cooking oil or soybean oil, biodiesel reduces dependence on limited energy resources and foreign oil. The “fat to fuel” process recovers energy and recycles waste oils that are either dumped in landfills or flushed down drains, clogging pipes and causing costly sewer spills.”
As the use of biodiesel fuels continues to grow, more and more companies have become involved in the industry. These companies often face unique environmental insurance obstacles. Legends Environmental Insurance Services offers programs designed to address these challenges. “Our programs address risks that companies face that are engaged in the production of alternative fuels, such as biodiesel,” reported Bill Lohman of Legends. “Companies producing alternative fuels, that meet ASTM D 6751 standards, are eligible for coverage by Legends. Programs cover risks associated with building plants for biodiesel production and the fuel’s actual production. General liability and umbrella programs are available.”
