Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning alternative to petroleum diesel. Biodiesel can be made from a wide variety of sources including vegetable oils and animal fats. In Minnesota, it is most commonly made from soybean oil.
Pure biodiesel contains no petroleum. However, it blends easily with petroleum diesel and is commonly used in blends of two percent to twenty percent.
Use of biodiesel reduces air pollution, decreases our dependence on foreign sources of oil, supports the local economy and helps improve diesel's lubricity. Learn more about biodiesel by visiting the links provided.
