Biodiesel A renewable fuel to meet todays and tomorrows energy needs in a clean and sustainable manner presentation to: American Seed Trade Association Chicago, Illinois December 7, 2005 presentation by: Richard Nelson Kansas State University/National Biodiesel Board This presentation is funded in part by the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, USDA Biodiesel General Definitions Biodiesel is a domestic, renewable fuel for diesel engines derived from fats and oils such as soybeans and animal fats. Biodiesel can be used in any concentration with petroleumbased diesel fuel in existing diesel engines with little or no modification. Biodiesel is not

raw vegetable oil! Biodiesel must be produced by a chemical process that removes glycerin from the oil. Biodiesel Petroleum diesel B100 B20 B10 B5 B2 0 50 100 Biodiesel blend, n. -- a blend of biodiesel fuel meeting ASTM D 6751 with petroleum-based diesel fuel designated BXX, where XX is the volume percent of

biodiesel. Petroleum (Liquid Fuel) Picture We currently import over 50% of our petroleum needs - 70% by 2025. Once roughly half the oil has been extracted, it becomes harder and more expensive to get at the remainder. The key date is not when the oil runs out, but when production peaks, meaning supplies decline. The peak may come by about 2020. Proved Oil Reserves 2003 Biodiesel Properties & Attributes B100 - Energy content of #1, 8% less than #2 High Cetane (avg. over 50) Sulfur free Cold flow - B2 the same as #2 petroleum diesel Energy Balance (3.24 to 1)

Biodiesel is a viable part of the overall effort to improve our air quality. B.

2003 2004 Distribution Outlets, June 2005 ASTM D 6751 Biodiesel Fuel Specification Fuel quality is of the utmost concern and importance to the biodiesel industry. ASTM D 6751 is the specification for biodiesel fuels irrespective of the feedstock source and/or processing method. Standard ensures safe operation in a compression ignition engine. ASTM International Specification D6751: Standard Specification for Biodiesel Fuel In 2002, ASTM International issued a standard specification for biodiesel fuel called D6751. This specification states that the only form of biodiesel that can be legally resold

for commercial operations must meet ASTM specifications.

Most OEM HQs have B20 experience: Wont void warranty, but remember OEMs dont make fuel and therefore they wont warranty fuel. Problems caused by the fuel are the responsibility of the fuel supplier. Federal Biodiesel Tax Incentive American Jobs Creation Act 2004 (Biodiesel Tax Exemption) Federal Excise Tax Credit through 12/31/2008 1 per percent of agribiodiesel blended into diesel fuel Applies to first-use vegetable oils and animal fats per percent of other
