UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 5 Second Generation Biodiesel The first generation of biodiesel is what we call FAME or fatty acid methyl esters made from vegetable oil, rapeseed oil and soybean oil. FAME results in deposits in the engine, typically carbon deposits which limit the engine’s performance and efficiency The resources are limited and FAME also affects the food supplies.
