Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2026
Global Biodiesel Market- Overview
Biodiesel obtained from non-mineral sources such as vegetable oil or animal fats is
being used in standard diesel engines. Being a renewable source of energy, the
government of various countries are working on introducing policies that promote the
use and production of biodiesel and are also providing support for the research and
development activities for production. Thus, driving the growth of biodiesel market.
Biodiesel is used in both pure form and blended with petroleum diesel.
Moreover, the need to integrate renewable energy sources and depleting non-
renewable energy sources are driving the demand for biodiesel. Currently, blended
biodiesel is being used on a large scale in heavy-duty vehicles, especially in the U.S.
Various methods are being used to produce biodiesel such as supercritical processes,
common batch processes, ultrasonic methods and also microwave methods.
Moreover, in terms of feedstock, waste vegetable oil is considered to be the best
sources to produce biodiesel. However, current production of vegetable oil and animal
fat is insufficient. Hence, there is a need for more feedstock to produce biodiesel in a
