Green Fuels

Our purpose-built biodiesel plant is solely dedicated to producing biodiesel from used cooking oil. It features cutting edge technology enabling us to produce good quality B100 fuel

Bio-Diesel

For us it is so obvious to prefer and to use biodiesel over petro-diesel but many others who are not familiar with all the biodiesel benefits it is not. For these people, the following reasons are a good starting point for understanding why biodiesel is the right and preferred choice of energy.


Why Bio-Diesel

Bio-Diesel is Economical

Let's say it loud and clear, biodiesel saves money! The fact that making biodiesel procedure is an easy process encourages more and more people to use biodiesel.

Bio Diesel Resources are Reproducible

Biodiesel is produced from vegetable oil or animal fat. These resources can be regrown and considered infinite in comparison to crude oil that is limited. When using biodiesel instead of petrol diesel, the demand for crude oil products is reduced and as a result their prices decrease.

Using Biodiesel is more Environment Friendly then other Energy Alternatives

While using biodiesel the exhaust emission is significantly less polluting. There are several parameters like hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide that are reduced when using biodiesel for running diesel engines.

Supporting Agriculture Industry

The main ingredient for preparing biodiesel is vegetables oil or animal fat. With the growth of use of biodiesel going on, there is a growing need for the main biodiesel resources which are the seeds like canola, corn, soy and others. The growing demand of biodiesel resources enables the agriculture in general and the farmers in particular, to have another market to sell to. This way this industry is more stabilized.

Reducing Dependence on Petro-Diesel and Fuel Companies

The more we use biodiesel instead of petro-diesel the less dependent we are in an infinite resource (crude oil). It means that these crude oil companies and in many cases countries, have less domination on other countries in the aspect of energy resources. This will lead for a better-balanced world.

Better for engine's health

Experience shows that engines running on biodiesel, its lubricity is improved compared to petro diesel fuel. The higher lubricity enables the engine to work in a smoother manner and because it works better it reduce the physical deterioration of the engine.

Best Energy Alternative to Fossil Fuels

Checking all energy alternatives of fuel for diesel engines, there is an absolute one conclusion that pops up. Each alternative to petro-diesel fuel requires adjustments and modifications, sometimes it is in the fuel injection system and sometimes another tank should be installed. The only exception is biodiesel. The majority of diesel engines will work smoothly with biodiesel with no modifications requirements. Another advantage of biodiesel over the other energy alternatives is the mileage per gallon. It is important to mention about the little drop in power when compared to petro-diesel. Biodiesel has a drop-in power of around 9%, which most drivers not even notice or notice a non-significant drop in power.

Closed loop recycling

Our closed loop process is complex in its design but simple in its concept. The used cooking oil waste produced by customers is collected by our local depots and transferred in bulk to our recycling plant.
Once produced the biodiesel, which meets the strict standards can be blended for use in vehicles. Our biodiesel can also be used by customers to fuel their generators and compliment their energy needs. This means our closed loop customers can fuel their vehicles on very low carbon biofuel made from the same oil they fried their food in! A great example of a successful circular economy model with the final product saving more than 90% GHG emissions compared to fossil diesel.

Bio-Diesel Products/Blends

B100 Biodiesel

Zijani produces pure, unblended B100 biodiesel refined from waste vegetable oil (wvo). Our proprietary technology produces a consistently high-quality fuel that can be tailored to any additional standards required by the end user.

Glycerol

zijani produces and sells bulk volume glycerol (alternately known as glycerin), a co-product of our refining process.

Made from Local Feed stocks

As much as possible, Zijani works directly with regional wvo producers to develop the finest virgin feedstock oils for use in our processors. Our commitment to local production benefits our regional economy by keeping energy Shillings within our communities here in Nairobi
Distribution Quality Assurance
Our commitment to excellence extends through our distribution partners, to meet rigorous standards for all fuel transportation and distribution equipment, maintaining quality control from our facility to the pump.

Longer Shelf Life

Our proprietary production technology allows us to produce a higher quality fuel with a longer shelf life.
Safe and Beneficial
Made from waste vegetable oils, our B100 biodiesel is a non-toxic, biodegradable and safe fuel that works in any conventional diesel engine. Our biodiesel improves air quality by reducing harmful pollutants, and provides a domestically grown fuel that benefits local economies while leaving them cleaner and greener. Zijani offers a safer, cleaner fuel for the future – right now. Capture the advantages of cleaner technologies and more efficient fleets that will drive your company forward.
