International Biodiesel Day

When:
August 10

Where:
Everywhere

Also known as:
International Biodiesel Day

August 10 is the anniversary of the first ignition
of the diesel engine in 1893.
It is said that this prototype of the diesel engine
used peanut oil as fuel and is therefore considered
to be the first case in the history of biodiesel being used.

The word “diesel” comes from the name of it’s inventor:
Rudolf Diesel.

Despite diesel fuel initially being made from plant oils,
cheap oils became very popular when diesel became widely used.
This did a lot of damage to the environment.
Therefore in many countries restrictions are being put
on what oils can be used for diesel.

Much research is being spend on developing cleaner fuels or fuel alternatives.
Even if that wouldn’t necessarily be biodiesel.
