A number of institutions in China have claimed successes in experimenting with producing the special diesel oil
A number of institutions in China have claimed successes in experimenting with producing the special diesel oil from rape oil, soybean oil, rice brans and other plants, which are considered substitutes to fossil materials such as coal and oil.
A bio-diesel production base with an annual output capacity of 10,000 tons in south China's Hainan Province has also developed the biological diesel oil products. Experts confirmed the quality of its products "is up to the US's standards" and applicable to many types of diesel engines.
More efforts have been called on to improve the research and effective utilization of the clean fuel as "it will help narrow the gap between supply and demand in China", said Min Enze, another CAE academician.
Biological diesel oil is not only a solution to the fuel shortage, it is both effective and environment-friendly, experts say.
