Homegrown, sustainable biodiesel

Missouri soybean farmers were among the first to invest in biodiesel. It’s no surprise that Missouri is a top producer and user of this soy-based fuel.

Fuel for any diesel engine

Biodiesel has been approved for use by all original equipment manufacturers in existing diesel engines. Not only is it high performing, but biodiesel offers benefits that petroleum-based diesel doesn’t, like improved lubricity and reduced emissions.

Domestically produced

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made in Missouri (and other Midwest states) using agricultural feedstocks such as soybean oil.

Clean burning

Biodiesel produces fewer greenhouse gasses, creates less particulate matter and reduces hydrocarbon emissions.

Year-round use

Biodiesel can be used in diesel vehicles year-round and requires no different cold-weather management practices than petroleum-based diesel fuel.

Supports animal agriculture

Biodiesel production drives demand for soybean oil while supporting animal ag. Soybeans can be crushed for both oil and meal. Increased demand for soybean oil to make biodiesel boosts the supply of soybean meal available to make animal feed leading to lower feed prices.

Farmers support biodiesel

Not only do farmers grow the soybeans that go into biodiesel, but they use and invest in it themselves.
