Iowa 2013 Biodiesel Production a Record

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa set a record for production of biodiesel last year reaching 230 million gallons.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, an ethanol and biodiesel trade group says Iowa's production of biodiesel was up 25 percent last year from 2012 when the previous record was set at 184 million gallons.

Biodiesel is primarily used to power fleet vehicles for government agencies, military, and commercial trucks.

Iowa, the leading producer of biodiesel, accounted for 13.5 percent of the nation's biodiesel production last year. The state has 12 biodiesel refineries with the capacity to produce nearly 315 million gallons annually.

Sixty-eight percent of the biodiesel in Iowa is made from soybean oil and 27 percent comes from animal fats. The remaining 5 percent is made from used cooking oil and other oils.
