Now, I’m going to say right off the bat that I don’t pretend to be knowledgeable about which would be better, a bio-fuel or a fuel additive, but it’s a good question, don’t you think?
Take a look at this article from Macon.com regarding Alterra Bioenergy. This company started off wanting to make and distribute a bio-diesel product and then due to supply and distribution problems, switched and are now producing a diesel fuel additive.
Is it safer? Is it more cost efficient? I would think that to put bio-diesel into gas stations across the US would be a feat in itself, considering you would have to replace or add new pumps at each station. That’s not to say it won’t happen at some point, but it would get very expensive, whereas with a diesel fuel additive, you just add it to the diesel itself.
But does a fuel additive reduce emissions? Will it make a greener environment? Take a look at this description of Green Plus®, a fuel additive produced by Biofriendly Corporation. Based on the description of how this fuel additive works, it breaks down the gasoline and diesel in order to both reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency.
Well, from my viewpoint, either one has got to be more biofriendly than the pollution that is being let into the environment right now. Reducing emissions and cleaning up the air are key and any steps taken to do that are steps in the right direction.
So…bio-fuel, fuel additive or both?
