Biodiesel in America

That the United States want to jump on the train of renewable energies, a series of congressional resolutions have proven on this issue. It has recently been established that the share of biofuels (Advanced Renewable Fuel) by 2022 is expected to grow steadily and reach share of approximately 60%.

However, even the use of diesel pushes due to the low fuel price and the intuitive mapping of diesel truck to the area on large reservations in the American car drivers. Mercedes so had the promotional launch of its ‘Bluetec’ – based on diesel models in 2009, no positive response, since shortly after the short-term high prices (almost $ 5 a gallon) of gasoline fell again to just $ 2.50 per gallon. This and the same higher price of diesel in the U.S. so far prevented a breakthrough of diesel engines for passenger cars. Nevertheless, it makes sense to put long-term biodiesel, as the oil stocks are less irreversible and the biodiesel can be used even in commercial areas. The largest single consumer of biodiesel is currently the U.S. Army. Biofuels have a countable spread out so far, especially in the predominantly agricultural states. For the purpose of promotion of biofuels, the U.S. and Brazil have agreed to closely collaborate in their production. Both nations are the largest producers of biofuels worldwide.

One can not determine that even if the entire crop of soybeans would be used for the production of biodiesel, only 6% of the needs would be met. Therefore, rather sought regional solutions, such as the use of fish oil from the waste of fish production in Alaska for their own diesel generators to produce electricity. Another example of local efforts is the conversion of the bus operation of the community Kalamazoo, Michigan, on biodiesel, which are obtained from the surfaces of the local water treatment plant planted plants. This long-term cooperation with the Western Michigan University has been established (http://www.wmich.edu/biodiesel/biodiesel.htm). Another initiative to increase the biodiesel content in compression engines was launched by Governor Tim Pawlenty in 2008, which obliges the state to REAS 2015 Biodiesel accounted for 15% of total consumption.
