Company Background

Biogen Kenya was founded in 2014 by a team of researchers to commercialize biodiesel production and refining, with a focus on fuel quality and environmental sustainability. In November, 2014 we opened the Kenya's first biodiesel Research and Development refinery in Nairobi, Kenya which is capable of producing at optimum up to 13,000 litres per year.

Today, Biogen Kenya aims to be a national leader in next generation biofuel production. We are driven by a single yet ambitious goal – to fundamentally change the way we fuel our cars, trucks, ships, trains and planes by developing and producing clean, renewable and sustainable alternative fuels, now and into the future.

To meet that goal, the company has developed and continues to develop proprietary technology and processes across the biofuel value chain. We are committed to ensuring that our biofuel is made from the most sustainable and environmentally friendly feedstocks possible, and that our product is of the highest quality in the industry.

Biogen Kenya produces pure, unblended B100 biodiesel refined from a variety of oils.

Commitment to Social Responsibility

It's not just fuel we're working on. We founded this company with a goal of fundamentally changing how we power our vehicles by creating a fuel that would reduce global warming and our dependence on the dwindling supply of petroleum, while at the same time providing a renewable source of energy for generations to come.

That commitment to sustainability runs through everything we do. We are dedicated to encouraging Social Responsibility within our corporation and within our communities. We strive to make decisions based not only on financial considerations, but also based on the short and long term consequences that our actions have on our world.

Reasons for Using Biodiesel

For us it is so obvious to prefer and to use biodiesel over petrodiesel 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.
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. According to studies, 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 petrodiesel 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 enable 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 Fuel
Checking all energy alternatives of fuel for diesel engines, there is an absolute one conclusion that pops up. Each alternative to petrodiesel 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 petrodiesel. Biodiesel has a drop in power of around 9%, which most drivers not even notice or notice a non significant drop in power.
