In 2019, the European Union formally recognized the U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol-Renewable Energy Directive (SSAP-RED), which allows oil from certified U.S. soybeans to be used as feedstock for biodiesel production in the region, positively impacting EU air quality. Watch as U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) chairman and United Soybean Board (USB) director Derek Haigwood, a soybean farmer from Arkansas, talks about the importance of this key development, which helps to meet EU demand for renewable biofuels.
