  • Biodiesel Complements the Food Supply

    When we grow protein to feed the world, we get more fat than we can eat. Biodiesel is made from used cooking oil, animal fats, and a growing diversity of waste greases and vegetable oils, like soybean oil. The US has a large supply of these excess fats and oils as a byproduct of food production. Using these excess fats and oils reduces the cost of protein for the food supply.

  • (Bio)Fueling The Economy

    Advances in technical research and market development are propelling agriculture in new directions. Through agricultural science, crop varieties and yields continue to improve to produce sufficient nutritious food for a growing and increasingly affluent global population. In the course of satisfying global demand for protein, agriculture has been oversupplying carbohydrates, fat, and fiber which are coproducts of protein production. This surplus gave rise to the development of biofuels.
