Biodiesel and Renewable Fuel Definitions

Biodiesel is defined as a renewable, biodegradable, mono alkyl ester combustible liquid fuel that is derived from vegetable oils or animal fats and meets the specifications adopted by rules and regulations of the Kansas Department of Agriculture pursuant to current law. The Kansas specification must meet the ASTM D6751-07 specification for biodiesel fuel (B100) blend stock for distillate fuels but may be more stringent regarding biodiesel quality and usability. Renewable fuels are defined as combustible liquids derived from grain starch, oil seed, animal fats, or other biomass; or produced from a biogas source, including any non-fossilized, decaying, organic matter capable of powering spark ignition machinery.
