There are great benefits in using straight vegetable oil “SVO” or recycled waste vegetable oil “WVO” as fuel; environmental benefits, mechanical benefits and significant financial savings. Vegetable oil doesn’t need chemicals nor any other additives and it is environmentally friendly to produce and process. It is biodegradable, CO2 neutral and safe to handle. Vegetable oil is a natural lubricant which results in longer engine life.
The performance is in most cases better than with diesel.
All biofuels (e.g. vegetable oils) are CO2-neutral and free of sulfur and pollutants in their pure, untreated state.
Additional advantages of vegetable oil
- water reactivity 0
- flash point approx. 300°C (reduces the risk of fire or accident)
- requires less energy to produce – locally produced
- protection of limited fossil fuels
