• Biodiesel Feedstocks: Diverse, Growing, and Potentially Abundant

    Biodiesel can be an elegant way to store solar energy for transportation uses. Biodiesel is nontoxic, biodegradable, reduces emissions, and creates local jobs. With multiple benefits stemming from every gallon of biodiesel used to displace fossil fuels, the big question is: What is the appropriate and achievable rate of growth for this young industry?

  • (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.

  • Biodiesel Does Not Compete with Food

    Half of the biodiesel produced in the US is made from soybean oil. The other half is produced substantially from animal fats, used cooking oil, and other recycled or waste oils. It is easy to see how using wastes and byproducts to make biodiesel is a good thing, but some people have trouble understanding that using soybean oil works the exact same way. Biodiesel uses excess oil that we don't use in our food supply.
