Small scale production of biodiesel fuel has been demonstrated in Finland during the last ten years and at the moment some production units are in operation. The purpose of this study is to present ongoing research project where biodiesel’s greenhouse gas and energy balances in small scale production will be studied. The raw material of biodiesel is turnip rape which is cultivated in the region of South Savo and thus the other name of the...
