What is Biodiesel?

Biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that is reducing U.S. dependence on foreign petroleum, creating jobs and improving the environment. Made from a diverse mix of feedstocks including recycled cooking oil, soybean oil, and animal fats, biodiesel is the first and only EPA-designated Advanced Biofuel in commercial-scale production across the country. Over two billion gallons of biodiesel were consumed in the US last year.
