The high and volatile price of mineral diesel presents a serious challenge for logistical companies. Biodiesel offers a reliable, effective and tax-efficient alternative that can deliver compelling cost savings. However, the quality of biodiesel is essential if logistics companies are to make the switch.
The premium quality of Green Fuels biodiesel means that logistics companies can be confident of the fuel they generate and see excellent results on their bottom line. Payback on initial investment is typically reached within a matter of months.
It is imperative for businesses in the logistics sector to operate in a sustainable manner and follow environmental best practices. Road haulage has a particularly high profile and many businesses are already facing growing concerns about emissions and their impact on the environment.
Green Fuels enables logistics operators to harness an affordable and efficient alternative to fossil fuels, enhancing their environmental credentials and delivering benefits to the bottom line. The biodiesel produced by Green Fuels burns cleaner and with fewer emissions than fossil diesel and can be generated at the point of need.
Rather than generating fuel at a central point and then distributing it to transport hubs and depots, Green Fuels can bring fuel production to the depots themselves. Our skid-mounted technology makes it easy to transport and install a production plant where it is needed. Intuitive touch screen technology using intelligent GSM software and robust engineering means the plant can be up and running within a matter of weeks, quickly generating benefits to the bottom line.
Compelling cost benefits
Experts agree that the world reached peak oil production in the year 2000. As oil now becomes ever more difficult to source and process, prices are rising year on year. This is a constant pressure point for large logistics businesses – even a small price increase has a huge effect on overheads, costs and profit. Green Fuels provides a cost-effective alternative to fossil fuel that can be produced easily and quickly.

Clean burning fuel
The life-cycle of biodiesel emits 85% less CO2 than fossil diesel. Biodiesel also releases fewer particles such as sulphur and hydrocarbons, making it a cleaner burning, more efficient fuel that enables haulage companies to demonstrate a serious commitment to sustainability.
A Green Fuels bio-refinery is converting feedstock and waste oil to bring economic benefits to a rural area of Mexico. The state of Chiapas in Mexico is one of the poorest in the country. The Mexican government has introduced a Green Fuels FuelMatic plant to stimulate the local economy, encouraging farmers to grow feedstock and using the biodiesel to fuel its fleet of 71 buses.
Green Fuels’ most popular processor, the FuelMatic GSX, has a range of capacities from 3,000 to 50,000 litres a day. The units are factory built and tested; modular, skid-mounted and portable, which makes them capable of operating within hours of delivery to site. This makes Green Fuels technology the most agile in the world.
Green Fuels unique patent-pending GSX technology is one of the core benefits of Green Fuels equipment. Developed with no practically no moving parts, it has transformed the glycerine separation elements of biodiesel processing. With a flow of up to 2,000 litres per hour it is now the benchmark for sustainable re-cycling of waste oil and other feedstocks.
Now in its eighth version, Green Fuels bespoke intelligent software manages and controls via advanced sensors and microprocessors every aspect of the bio-refinery process through its touchscreen panel. Updates to the software and even diagnostic operations can be achieved centrally from Green Fuels HQ.
FuelMatic bio-refineries can cope with a variety of feedstock oils – from waste cooking oil to different cold and hot pressed fresh vegetable oils, as well as pre-treated used vegetable oils and yellow grease. For all different raw materials, a trans-esterification grade of > 98% and constant product quality will be reached.
