Producers benefit from increased biodiesel production
A governing board member for Clean Fuels Alliance America says the production of biodiesel has helped provide some added value to farmers.
Greg Anderson, who also farms in northeast Nebraska, says the clean fuels industry increases market opportunities for soybeans.
“Soybeans continue to comprise about one half of biodiesel and renewable diesel production, and that will stay constant. It will still be the foundational flagship feedstock for years to come.”
He tells Brownfield it also adds value to soybean oil. “It contributes to the price of the bushel at the farm gate. Without biodiesel, we’d be looking at a lot less dollars per acre.”
Anderson says the return has been critical for farmers facing higher production costs.
