With every passing day, the reserves of our traditional and non-renewable energy sources like petroleum, coal, natural gas, and specific types of aquifers, variants of petroleum like LPG and natural gas like LNG and CNG are getting depleted. Sooner or later, these reserves will be completely exhausted. Human beings were aware of this grim fact a long time back and therefore have been persistently engaged in exploring various ways and means to seek out alternative fuel sources. Initially, human beings tried tapping and harnessing the vast energies locked in the natural elements like wind (wind energy), water (hydroelectricity), sun (solar energy), and atoms (atomic and nuclear energy).
But harnessing energy from these natural elements was expensive and led to further depletion of the non-renewable energy sources. Therefore, human beings started looking for energy sources that could be used again and again or renewable energy sources. The solution lay in producing biofuels or fuels that could be processed or extracted from biomass, to be precise conversion of solid flora and fauna residues, liquid fuels or biogases. Bio fuels, most commonly ethanol and biodiesel are finding across the board use viz. transportation sector, power sector, commercial segments, domestic segments, and all other categories of commercial and industrial segments as the prices of non-renewable energy sources or fuels are skyrocketing.
Further, the rising levels of pollution and the steady depletion of the ozone layer caused by the combustion such conventional fuels is also driving governments and industries all over the world to embrace alternative or renewable energy sources. Ethanol and biodiesel are two types of biofuels. Ethanol or bio-ethanol is actually alcohol in different forms like propanol, butanol, and methanol. It is produced by fermenting the carbohydrate content of starch found in maize, sugarcane, grasses like alfalfa, and other plant products high in carbohydrate content. Ethanol produced from these plant products is known as 1st generation ethanol.
The second generation of biofuels is being generated from sustainable feedstock depending upon availability of feedstock and the concomitant effects upon biodiversity and land use. Some of the 2nd generation bio fuels are algae ethanol, microalgae biofuel, and cellulosic ethanol, and biohydrogen, biohydrogen diesel, mixed alcohols and so on. In its refined form, ethanol is used as a fuel for vehicles or is used as an additive in gasoline for increasing octane content for reduced carbon monoxide and dioxide and other toxic effluents emissions. There are many biofuel companies presently engaged in biofuel production as these companies are encouraged by governments to maintain a sustained production by getting tax incentives.
NAZCO Distributors is concerned with biodiesels as it is engaged in collecting the used cooking oils from various restaurants and outlets like McDonalds’, Pizza Hut, KFC and many other Chinese and Thai restaurants. It collects the UCO (used cooking oil) and WVO (waste vegetable oil) from different sources and then refines it or recycles it. It then transports this processed oil to different bio fuel and biomass companies where this recycled oil is used for biodiesel production.
We also transport other vegetable oils like jatropha oil, rapeseed oil, soybean oil, crude palm oil, coconut oil etc. Biodiesel is also processed from animal fats. Like ethanol, it is used as a fuel supplement in its pure form for all forms of transport and is mixed with gasoline for better internal combustion. Biofuels are purported to meet 25% of the global demand for transportation fuels by the middle of this century.
