BioFry Event Illustrates Industry Coordination

On Friday September 22, Clean Fuels hosted the annual BioFry event in coordination with the American Soybean Association and North American Renderers Association. The event drew nearly 100 attendees from the Capitol Hill community to learn about the groups’ unified message on the benefits of clean fuels.

The annual event serves attendees snacks of chicken and french fries to illustrate that soybeans are used in animal feed and food preparation while used cooking oil, surplus oil, and animal fats are recycled to make clean fuels. It provides an opportunity to educate the community about the benefits of biodiesel, renewable diesel, and SAF – which include adding value to the soybean and rendering industries.

Attendees were interested to learn that many DC work truck fleets use high biodiesel blends – including B100. Other attendees were more familiar with Clean Fuels, having participated in previous Clean Fuels Foundation education tours. The event created an opportunity to ncrease coordination among the industries, unify messaging, and build relationships with interested audiences.


Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil, and animal fats, the clean fuels industry is a proven, integral part of America’s clean energy future. Clean Fuels Alliance America is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel supply chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers and fuel distributors. Clean Fuels receives funding from a broad mix of private companies and associations, including the United Soybean Board and state checkoff organizations.
