Biodiesel is a plant-based biofuel most often used as a diesel substitute.
ADM biodiesel provides engine lubricity improvements while reducing dependency of regular fossil fuel. Our biodiesel is produced through a patented process known as transesterification, in which vegetable oils are heated with alcohol in the presence of a catalyst to yield mono-alkyl esters (biodiesel) and glycerin. Biodiesel feedstocks can include vegetable oils, rendered animal fats, algae oils as well as used cooking oils and greases.
ADM produces biodiesel from vegetable oils in the EU, Brazil, Canada and in the U.S.
ADM products are fully compliant with all EU, South American and North American quality standards.
