Fuel type

Fuel types for co-generation systems available in BASIX:

  • Biodiesel (an alternative fuel or fuel additive for diesel engines, which is renewable, biodegradable and has low greenhouse gas emissions)
  • Gas
  • Diesel

These fuel types are ranked in order of greenhouse efficiency, with biodiesel the most greenhouse efficient fuel type, followed by gas, then diesel.

If you are selecting the biodiesel option, the calculations assume that B60 biodiesel will be used (a blend of 60% biodiesel, 40% diesel). If the system is designed to take B100 (100% biodiesel), please apply through the BASIX Alternative Assessment process.
