Global Biodiesel Market- Overview

Biodiesel obtained from non-mineral sources such as vegetable oil or animal fats is being used in standard diesel engines. Being a renewable source of energy, the government of various countries are working on introducing policies that promote the use and production of biodiesel and are also providing support for the research and development activities for production. Thus, driving the growth of biodiesel market. Biodiesel is used in both pure form and blended with petroleum diesel.

Moreover, the need to integrate renewable energy sources and depleting non-renewable energy sources are driving the demand for biodiesel. Currently, blended biodiesel is being used on a large scale in heavy-duty vehicles, especially in the U.S. Various methods are being used to produce biodiesel such as supercritical processes, common batch processes, ultrasonic methods and also microwave methods. Moreover, in terms of feedstock, waste vegetable oil is considered to be the best sources to produce biodiesel.  However, current production of vegetable oil and animal fat is insufficient. Hence, there is a need for more feedstock to produce biodiesel in a large quantity.
