Biodiesel Basics #8: Biodiesel Exhaust is Less Offensive


The exhaust from biodiesel, a renewable fuel made right here in Wisconsin, is much less offensive than regular petroleum exhaust.  Here are some facts:


  • Equipment operators have compared the smell of biodiesel exhaust to that of French fries. [Source: MSNBC, “Traveling Carnivals Like Smell of Biodiesel,” http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13629857/]


  • Biodiesel exhaust is safer than petroleum diesel exhaust. [Source: National Biodiesel Board, “Interesting Facts of Biodiesel,” http://www.biodiesel.org/markets/gen/]   


 “Biodiesel Basics” is a series of weekly facts from the Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance highlighting the positive benefits of biodiesel production and use in Wisconsin.


The Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance is a diverse group of businesses, environmental groups, and statewide and local organizations that have come together to build both public and legislative awareness of the Bio Industry in Wisconsin.
