Industry Benefits

  • Greenhouse Gas Benefits

    Infograph: Biodiesel and renewable diesel reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50% compared to petroleum diesel.

  • Valuing Immediate Carbon Reductions

    Infograph: Because biodiesel and renewable diesel are drop-in alternatives, fleets can achieve valuable carbon reductions today at a relatively low cost.

  • Clean Fuels Industry Benefits

    Infograph: The biodiesel and renewable diesel industry is essential, generating economic, environmental, and health benefits.

  • Nebraska

  • California  

    Infograph: Biomass-based diesel's share
    of California's diesel fuel market reached 45.5% in 2022

  • Connecticut

    Infograph: Connecticut's heating oil
    must contain a growing percentage of
    biodiesel -- reaching 50% in 2035.

  • Illinois

    Infograph: Illinois is a top producer and consumer of biodiesel and a top grower of soybeans.

  • Indiana

    Infograph: According to a recent study, a tax incentive for biodiesel blends could increase Indiana’s
    use of homegrown biodiesel by 5.6 million gallons per year.

  • Iowa

    Infograph: Iowa biodiesel production
    increased to 349 million gallons
    in 2022.

  • Louisiana

    Infograph: Soybeans were Louisiana's top crop in 2022.

  • Massachusetts

    Infograph: By 2023, Massachusetts will
    implement a long-term declining
    emissions cap on heating fuels.

  • Michigan

    Infograph: A statewide renewable fuel standard would drastically increase Michigan’s potential demand for biodiesel blends and eventually reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by more than 1.4 million metric tons per year.

  • Minnesota

    Infograph: Minnesota was the first state to require biodiesel use. It is a top producer of biodiesel and grower of soybeans.

  • Missouri

    Infograph: Missouri’s 247 million gallon/year capacity represents roughly 10 percent of total U.S. biodiesel production capacity.

  • New York

    Infograph: New York State requires
    increasing biodiesel blends in home heating oil: 20% by July 2030.

  • Ohio

    Infograph: Ohio is among the top 10 states in soybean production and biodiesel use.

  • Oregon

    Infograph: In 2022, biodiesel and renewable diesel met 14.3% of Oregon's diesel fuel demand.

  • Rhode Island

    Infograph: Rhode Island requires blends of 5% biodiesel or renewable diesel in all heating oil for residential, commercial, or industrial uses. The requirement increases to 50% in 2030.

  • Texas

    Infograph: Among U.S. states, Texas
    ranks second in both biodiesel and renewable diesel production.

  • Washington

    Infograph: Washington’s Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) requires fuel suppliers to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels
    to 20% below 2017 levels by 2038.
