Our environment needs sustainable solutions. We believe biodiesel and renewable diesel are a leading solution in combatting the challenge of climate change. Biodiesel is better, cleaner, and available now, reducing greenhouse gases by up to 86%. This sustainable fuel source is produced from a diverse mix of feedstocks including recycled cooking oil, soybean oil, and animal fats. This is not a future fuel; this is a today solution. Biodiesel sustainability is here now.
From the Experts
The Pathway to Decarbonization
To reduce the probability of devastating climate change impacts, the world economy must rapidly decarbonize. In 2019, 28% of the total U.S. energy consumption was attributed to the transportation sector and approximately 91% of the domestic transportation energy use came from petroleum products.
Biodiesel: A Cleaner Air Choice
A new, landmark study proves that biodiesel could decrease premature deaths, reduce cancer risk, and alleviate respiratory illness and asthma complications for thousands of Americans. The study, from Trinity Consultants, quantifies how switching to biodiesel can result in significant benefits at the neighborhood and census tract level, making immediate impacts in the backyards of many Americans today.
Making an Impact Today
Climate experts agree that time is of the essence. We must make "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes" by 2030 to limit global warming, or the results could be irreversible, according to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It's no surprise that the transportation sector plays a large role in making those changes.
