Environmental Benefits of Biodiesel

  • Biodiesel will be able to reduce the CO2 Level siginificantly and with further development of the Biodiesel and production facilities, Nepal will be able to walk towards a B20 environment within the next 4years.
  • Biodiesel reduces (on a B5 scenario) the exhaust fumes about 50% compared to the use of standard Petro Diesel.
  • As most of the vehicles are used within the city limits of Kathmandu, the environmental benefits regarding health and respiratory issues will increase siginificantly.
  • The majority of fuel consumption is based in Petro Diesel. Therefore Biodiesel is for the long term the only viable subsidy to reduce CO2 outputs for transports.
  • The plantation of CO2 reducing plants will additionally have a globally positive impact.
