Biodiesel Additive: Fuel for Thought
Eastman Chemical Co.'s BioExtend 30 is an antioxidant additive for biodiesel that extends shelf life and enhances product protection by inhibiting biodiesel's tendency to react with oxygen. Making its debut at the recent National Biodiesel Conference and Expo in San Antonio, TX, BioExtend 30 is intended for biodiesel producers who want to meet increasing consumer demand for environmentally compliant products without sacrificing the performance associated with traditional petroleum-based fuels. The additive has been tested in a variety of biodiesel fuels made from raw materials such as soybean, rapeseed, palm, cottonseed, and sunflowers.
