Biodiesel: A Cleaner, Sustainable Choice for Today and the Future

Biodiesel, a renewable, cleaner-burning diesel replacement, is a true U.S. Soy innovation fueled by rising demand. Over the last decade, biodiesel demand for soybean oil increased by 300 percent [1] with soy oil accounting for about nine billion pounds of biodiesel feedstock annually[2].

The National Biodiesel Board recently updated its longtime sustainability platform into a new, modern Biodiesel Sustainability Now website. Site visitors can learn about emission reductions, biodiesel’s contribution to a healthier environment, the relationship between food and fuel, and other sustainable efforts in the renewable fuel space. The new site houses biodiesel- and renewable diesel-related sustainability posts from subject matter experts, sustainability stories from third party news outlets, and much more.

Visit biodieselsustainability.org to find out more about this cleaner, sustainable fuel choice.
