Bio20 Biodiesel


B20 Biodiesel (20% Soy Bean, Vegetable Oil and other Agricultural Components)

On November 1, 2002, Fred M. Schildwachter & Sons hosted "Biodiesel Day" to mark the commencement of its new biodiesel operations. The event also included the ceremonial first truck loading of B20 biodiesel in the New York City area.

On January 1, 2005, new Federal Tax Bill supports use of B20 Biodiesel with $.20 per gallon price support which is reflected in Schildwachter B20 Biodiesel pricing.

On August 11, 2006, New York State grants sales tax, petroleum business tax and excise tax effective September 1, 2006 through August 31, 2011. A 20% reduction for B20 Biodiesel (over the road diesel purchases).

Longer diesel engine life.

Due to its greater lubricity, B20 Biodiesel enhances diesel engine performance.

Reduced dependence on foreign oil

Home grown here in the United States by American farmers, soybean and other agricultural product components of Biodiesel, conserves petroleum imported from others.

Clean. Green. Made From the Soybean.

In our goal to be kind to the earth, Schildwachter offers B20 biodiesel fuel, which blends 20% all-natural vegetable oils such as soybeans with 80% of our premium diesel. In fact, we are the first terminal on the east coast to offer biodiesel. Our supplier is World Energy Alternatives, the country's largest supplier of biodiesel.

Environmentally friendly B20 Biodiesel.

Biodiesel is a domestically produced, clean burning, biodegradable and renewable fuel that is used in ALL diesel engines. It produces fewer harmful emissions and toxins during combustion and greatly reduces carbon dioxide addition to the atmosphere (very important for reducing the build up of greenhouse gases). In addition, B20 biodiesel contains less sulfur, the leading cause of equipment breakdowns.

Effective September 1, 2006, Fred M. Schildwachter & Sons furnishes Ultra Low Sulfer Diesel (ULSD).

High performance B20 Biodiesel.

Performance, storage requirements and maintenance are similar for biodiesel blend fuels and petroleum diesel. It has a high Cetane number (good for ignition capabilities) and is a superior lubricant.

Simply "fill-up and go" B20 Biodiesel.

Biodiesel requires no engine modification, retrofit or new refueling infrastructure. It is delivered exactly the same as is conventional diesel fuel, requiring absolutely no special handling or storage on the part of its users.

Savings.

Regulated fleets can earn Energy Policy Act (EPACT) credits by using B20 Biodiesel fuel. The Federal Energy Bill is designed to provide significant economic support for use of Alternative Fuels such as B20 Biodiesel and provides a "level playing field" costwise.
