BIODIESEL

What is Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is a clean-burning alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources. It does not contain petroleum, but can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend that can be used in diesel engines with little or no modifications.Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.Because it is made from renewable resources, Biodiesel is better for the environment. It is less toxic than table salt and biodegrades as fast as sugar. Biodiesel also has lower emissions compared to petroleum diesel and its use decreases our dependence on foreign oil, contributing to our own economy, since it is made in the USA from renewable resources such as soybeans.Atlantic Petroleum is an emerging supplier of biodiesel. We are committed to helping our community become a healthier place to live by providing cleaner burning alternative fuels.

ETHANOL 

Ethanol is a high octane, clean burning, and renewable fuel. The use of ethanol reduces harmful auto emissions, offers consumers a cost-effective choice at the pump, and decreases the amount of expensive crude oil needed to satisfy the nation’s thirst for transportation fuel.

Ethanol is produced at more than 175 facilities across the nation and blended in to unleaded gasoline in varying percentages. Ethanol is most commonly retailed as E10, the blend of 10 percent ethanol (90% gasoline) for use in all automobiles.

Increasingly, ethanol is also available as E85, the 85 percent ethanol blend for use in Flexible Fuel Vehicles. E85 is the term for motor fuel blends of 85 percent ethanol and just 15 percent gasoline. E85 is an alternative fuel as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Besides its superior performance characteristics, ethanol burns cleaner than gasoline; it is a completely renewable, domestic, environmentally friendly fuel that enhances the nation’s economy and energy independence.

Tests have shown that E85 vehicles reduce harmful hydrocarbon and benzene emissions when compared to vehicles running on gasoline. E85 can also reduce carbon dioxide (CO2), a harmful greenhouse gas and a major contributor to global warming.
