Recycled Vegetable Oil - Boise Only!
“The use of vegetable oils for engine fuels may seem insignificant today. But such oils may become in the course of time as important as the petroleum and coal tar products of the present time.”
Rudolf Diesel, 1912
The uses for recycled vegetable oil are only limited by the imagination. Bio-diesel production, well drilling, lubrication, lotions, potions and soaps can be made with recycled vegetable oils. Many modern day plastics, paints and stains are also made from Recycled Vegetable Oil. It is not for consumption!
Benefits of Vegetable Oil Fuel
When used in place of petroleum diesel, Biodiesel and recycled vegetable oil offer a wide range of environmental, health, economic and fuel security benefits. Vegetable oil burned as fuel does not emit sulfur dioxide (SO2), a main compound in diesel responsible for acid rain. In addition to this 100% reduction in SO2, recycled vegetable oil fuel produces 78% less carbon dioxide (CO2), the dominant greenhouse gas responsible for global warming, 48% less carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas, 48% less asthma-causing particulate matter, and 80% less cancer-causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s) than petroleum diesel.
Besides the substantial reductions in polluting emissions, vegetable oil fuel can also give the U.S. greater fuel security, curbing our reliance on imported oil. Currently the U.S. imports about 60% of our fuel needs from other countries, leaving us susceptible to dramatic price shocks and high defense costs to secure the imported oil.
Vegetable oil is produced domestically in the U.S., grown by American farmers. A 2001 U.S. Department of Agriculture study found that if Americans increased their demand for vegetable oil by 200 million gallons, the average net farm income would increase by $300 million per year.
