As an alternative to oil, Biodiesel is definitely an option everyone needs to consider due to its multiple advantages such as mitigating the effects of climate change. One of those advantages is that its production and industrialization keep getting better and more ecological as time passes. And speaking of evolution, Biodiesel’s current supply chain needs to be part of the past to open the door to a game-changing circular economy.
Nowadays, there are four main steps that are followed in the process to manufacture this biofuel. First, waste cooking oil is collected from restaurants and grocery stores. Then, it’s processed into fuel-grade feedstock before being shipped and sold to companies in Cancer Alley, Louisiana. As the final step, it’s processed through a process called transesterification and distributed via pipelines back to our local communities and hauled to truck stops.
However, Biodiesel 4 Schools’ new circular economy supply chain suggests a better, healthier, ideal, and safe option for everybody without wasting all the advantages that Biodiesel features as an alternative to regular oil. It’s a completely followable, viable model to take Biodiesel production to the next level and give it better usage.
What Biodiesel 4 Schools’ new circular economy supply chain for Biodiesel proposes is the following…
- Obtain Vacuum Truck/Pump Truck
- Go to grocery stores/restaurants
- Pump waste cooking oil onto the truck (6.000 gallons)
- Clean the fuel is the most critical step
- Sell 6.000 gallons to tanker company
In other words, waste cooking oil is processed into biofuel locally through the cited-before transesterification. Then, after being acquired by the tanker company, it’s ideally distributed to local truck stops and municipal vehicles in the communities.
