Powering Engines and Generators

<p>One major energy need in many underserved markets is inexpensive fuel to power engines, used either for agricultural work or for generating small-scale power. Biofuel engines are primarily powered by biodiesel, which is produced from oilseeds which are crushed into oil and then processed in a reactor. Some use 100% biodiesel, some use a mix of biodiesel and fossil fuel. 5 enterprises on the map try to help beneficiaries access locally grown fuel sources, through either: Development or distribution of biofuel engines, or Growth of oilseeds in managed plantations. See more about biodiesel in the Biomass Power section.</p>
