Centurion Biodiesel is a company which is focused on the development and implementation of urban-based biodiesel strategies utilizing non-food crop biodiesel feed stocks, namely used cooking oil.
We believe that the use of sustainably-produced biodiesel in combination with demand reduction measures such as mass-transit and transportation alternatives and in concert with technological advances such as diesel hybrids and light rail systems can create a South Africa that is both energy independent and sustainable.
Centurion Biodiesel also believes that all used cooking oil generated by South African restaurants should be captured and processed into biodiesel as part of this national sustainability strategy to positively impact our environment.
Our company continues to seek local companies in urban areas throughout South Africa to work with in implementing successful biodiesel usage strategy to promote a reduction of their carbon footprint and a sustainable energy policy.

Biodiesel is one of the most thoroughly tested alternative fuels on the market. A number of independent studies have been completed with the results showing biodiesel performs similar to petroleum diesel while benefiting the environment and human health compared to diesel. That research includes studies performed by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Stanadyne Automotive Corp. (the largest diesel fuel injection equipment manufacturer in the U.S.), Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, and Southwest Research Institute. Biodiesel is the first and only alternative fuel to have completed the rigorous Health Effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act. Biodiesel has been proven to perform similarly to diesel in more 50 million successful road miles in virtually all types of diesel engines, countless off-road miles and countless marine hours. Currently more than 300 major fleets use the fuel.
