Biodiesel production has increased considerably in Europe in recent years. In 1996, production was nearly 0.5 million tonnes. Today, the production capacity is much higher. This development has also been supported by the automobile industry. In fact, several million passenger cars and commercial vehicles have been approved by their manufacturers to run on biodiesel fuel or higher biodiesel blends with mineral diesel. Compliance with the European Biodiesel standard DIN EN 14214 ensures a continuously high quality level.
