Abundant Source of Energy
This is actually quite an abundant source of energy because there are lots of plant varieties that have seeds, which contain a high amount of oil. Some plants even have a seed pod tissue with high oil concentrations. As long as any kind of oil can be extracted from any part of a plant in high enough levels, that plant can technically be a source of biodiesel.
With that said, there are commercial realities that intervene. It must make economic sense for any kind of producer to extract such plant-based oils; otherwise, the economies of scale is just not going to be there. This is a very important aspect of this renewable-energy source because as far as economic feasibility is concerned, there are many different sources of biodiesel. Some are more realistic than others. Gobluesun.com is dedicated to sharing information regarding this extremely important renewable-energy source.
While we understand that there is a tremendous amount of diversity out there in terms of which plants one can source biodiesel from, we have put together this website to act as a universal data clearing house where people looking for any type of informative content on biodiesel can get the information they need. We do this without pre-selecting biodiesel types based on economic viability. This is a very strategic editorial decision because we know that economics, ultimately, is local.
In the United States, there are certain biodiesel choices that are made day in day out because they fit economic realities of the specific regions in the United States that those biodiesel and fuels are available. In other words, they fit the local economic considerations of the areas they’re produced in. That’s why they’re produced in the first place.
On the other hand, biodiesel producers in other parts of the world may find it completely economical to try to use other plant-based feedstocks for their biodiesel. Plant varieties and feedstock that may be prohibitively expensive in the United States, or may not be all that practical, could make all the sense in the world in other parts of the globe.
HIGH-FAT AND HIGH-OIL PLANT VARIETIES
This is why we do not leave anything out. We list down all the high-fat and high-oil plant varieties that have been documented all over the world, and we do our best to list out how these oils can be extracted from and processed into biodiesel. It is our hope then that individuals from around the world, with their own specific economic realities, can go through this list and zero in on a handful of likely candidates and experiment with this. After they’ve done experimentation, they size them up in terms of the economic viability, and they can specialize in biodiesel sources that make the most sense in their particular region of the world.
