Powder Cowboy Catskiing testing Bio Diesel as it seeks alternative and eco friendly forms of energy.
PR9.NET July 23, 2008 - Fernie, BC Canada – Powder Cowboy Catskiing completed testing of new Bio Diesel for the 2008 season. Powder Cowboy Cat skiing used 3075 Li of B20, 20% biodiesel 80% diesel. This test resulted in just over 1 tonne of GHG reduction (525 Litres is a one tonne reduction).
Biodiesel is an environmentally friendly alternative diesel fuel. It requires no modification to a diesel engine or fuel system, just pour it in and go. Biodiesel is currently made from vegetable oils, animal tallow and used restaurant fryer oil; however there is great promise with using algae as the raw material. "Biodiesel reduces CO2 by 78%" says Gary Tomlinson of Agri-Green Biodiesel Inc. It has a 3 to 1 energy balance, meaning for every unit of energy input, there are three units created. This is far better than gasoline, petroleum diesel, and ethanol which are all about one to one. Biodiesel has higher Cetane and Lubricity resulting in longer engine life and more complete combustion of the petroleum side of the fuel mix that Powder Cowboy used. Most users experience better fuel economy." According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) 1% of the worlds agricultural land is being used for biofuels.
