Biodiesel fuel is a clean, renewable fuel that can be made from various biomass oil feedstocks such as waste vegetable oil, yellow grease, animal fats, and virgin vegetable oils. The objective of Biodiesel Safety and Best Management Practices for Small-Scale Noncommercial Use and Production is to review some of the accepted practices associated with small-scale biodiesel production to make it a safe, environmentally sound practice that generates a quality product. Prospective biodiesel producers are also encouraged to use this information as they decide whether or not to begin making biodiesel.

Who is this for?
