Feedstock and Biodiesel Characteristics Report Released

November 20, 2009 | Renewable Energy Group (REG) has released a feedstock comparison research report that includes 36 commercial and global/novel feedstocks, including rendered fats and oils, in an apples-to-apples format. The report showcases benchmarks for traditional and unique oils and fats and resulting ASTM D6751 biodiesel characteristics, and provides current and potential biodiesel feedstock suppliers and producers with key information on the physical and chemical characteristics of both feedstock and finished fuel. It also aids in answering commercialization and market viability questions for the biodiesel industry, and utilizes uniform method for pretreating, esterifying, transesterifying, and filtering finished methyl ester.

The report is available on REG’s Web site at www.regfuel.com/Feedstock%20and%20Biodiesel%20Characteristics%20Report.Media%20Alert.htm.
