Group: Biodiesel Production in Iowa Jumped in 2012

JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) A group that monitors the biodiesel industry in Iowa says a record has been set for production.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association says the state's biodiesel plants produced 184 million gallons in 2012. That's up from the previous 2011 record of 169 million gallons.

IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw says he expects more production in the new year after Congress reinstated the biodiesel tax incentive that had expired. He says that will be beneficial for jobs, the environment and energy security.

The group, which represents the state's liquid renewable fuels industry, says soybean oil accounted for more than 70 percent of production. Animal fats came in second at 18 percent. Canola oil, inedible corn oil, and used cooking oil made up the remaining 10 percent.
