Welcome to Memphis Biofuels, LLC

Biodiesel refinery tanksHave you noticed that all across America people are talking about alternative fuels? More than likely, you have sensed the excitement in these conversations. We, at Memphis Biofuels LLC, are very excited!

Memphis Biofuels LLC was established to provide an environmentally friendly and domestically produced source of energy to fuel America’s economy all the way from America’s farms to the Fortune 500. This is a new era in the history of the United States, and we are very excited to be in on the beginning of such a huge venture!

Memphis Biofuels LLC produces Biodiesel fuel, which has the following benefits:
  • Biodiesel reduces emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) by approximately 50% and carbon dioxide by 78% on a net lifecycle basis because the carbon in biodiesel emissions is recycled from carbon that was already in the atmosphere, rather than being new carbon from petroleum that was sequestered in the earth's crust.
  • Biodiesel contains fewer aromatic hydrocarbons: benzofluoranthene: 56% reduction; Benzopyrenes: 71% reduction.
  • Biodiesel reduces by as much as 65% the emission of particulates, small particles of solid combustion products. This reduces cancer risks by up to 94% according to testing sponsored by the Department of Energy.
  • Biodiesel is biodegradable and non-toxic - tests sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture confirm biodiesel is less toxic than table salt and biodegrades as quickly as sugar.
  • In the United States, biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to have successfully completed the Health Effects Testing requirements (Tier I and Tier II) of the Clean Air Act (1990)
Biodiesel can be used in pure form or may be blended with petroleum diesel at any concentration in most modern diesel engines. Biodiesel's higher lubricity index compared to petrodiesel is an advantage and can contribute to longer fuel injector life. Biodiesel is a better solvent than petrodiesel and has been known to break down deposits of residue in the fuel lines of vehicles that have previously been run on petroleum.

Biodiesel can be distributed using today's infrastructure, and its use and production is increasing rapidly. Fuel stations are beginning to make biodiesel available to consumers, and a growing number of transport fleets use it as an additive in their fuel.
