The basics of biodiesel


All kinds of useful stuff

Biodiesel is a "Green Fuel"

Biodiesel is made from a renewable energy source unlike fossil diesel which is made from a finite energy source. Basically, we can grow our fuel. As long as we have sun, water and soil, we can grow crops that have a high oil content in their nuts or seeds. Typical crops are: Sunflower, Palm, Soy, Canola, Moringa, Maize, Carinata, Solaris, Jatropha and Jajoba to name a few.



What engines can use Biodiesel?

Biodiesel can be used in ANY diesel engine, whether is may be a Car, SUV, LDV, Truck, Forklift, Tractor, Generator, Boat, Mining, Earth moving or in a Burner for heating. Wherever fossil diesel is used, biodiesel can be used.

Used Cooking Oil Collection

Green-Diesel collects used cooking oil from Restaurants, Hotels, Fast Food Franchises, Hospitals, Ships, Military Bases, Fish Shops, Catering Companies and many more. If you need your used cooking oil collected, get in touch with us on 082 901 2047.

What is Biodiesel
( bio diesel )?

Biodiesel is made from a vegetable oil (pressed from nuts or seeds) or animal fat (tallow or rendered chicken fat). When biodiesel is made using methanol, it is referred to as a Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME). Methanol can be substituted with ethanol. A catalyst is used to create the chemical reaction between the oil and the methanol. A typical catalyst will be Potassium Hydroxide or Sodium Hydroxide. The by-product of biodiesel production is called Glycerol (sometimes called Glycerin), which also has many uses.


Biodiesel is a direct replacement for fossil diesel. However it can also be blended with fossil diesel in any percentage. Biodiesel is better for your engine and will extend it’s service life. Its never too late to start using biodiesel.


Biodiesel Processors

Green-Diesel manufacture 10 processor sizes called the CERES range.
These processors have been designed by Craig Waterman

CERES 1 - 200 Litre

Produces ± 150L of biodiesel in 3 days
R48 500

CERES II - 300 Litre

Produces ± 250L of biodiesel in 3 days
R58 500

CERES I - 500 Litre

Produces ± 385L of biodiesel in 3 days
R78 000

CERES 1 - 750 Litre

R900 000

 Green-Diesel manufacture biodiesel batch processors from 80 litre to 11000 litre. Designed and manufactured in Cape Town using clever engineering, our CERES range of processors combine the 3 stages of production (Processing, Washing & Drying) into a single tank with a very small footprint.

Biodiesel Blending Systems

Green-Diesel manufacture, supply and install biodiesel blending systems to mix biodiesel and fossil diesel in the right percentage, according to customer requirements.

Biodiesel can be mixed with regular diesel (500ppm, 50ppm or 10ppm) in any percentage and it can be used in Turbo charged engines.

Internationally biodiesel is coded as follows: B100 – means 100% pure biodiesel (no regular diesel added) B50 – means 50% biodiesel and 50% regular diesel B20 – means 20% biodiesel and 80% regular diesel.
