This year's legislative priorities include:

  • Continue to protect the tax credits in the 2022 Biofules Access Act
  • Protect and increase biodiesel retail and terminal funding in Renewable Fuel Infrastructure Program

Iowa biodiesel producers, soybean farmers and other supporters take to the State Capitol once a year to ask lawmakers to extend or impliment policies that help keep Iowa the No. 1 bioidesel-producing state. 

These policies have almost tripled the number of retailers carrying biodiesel in Iowa, increasing availability for consumers while bolstering the state’s farmers and economy. 




Policies include a Fuel Tax Differential for biodiesel blends, a production credit and a retail tax credit.

“These policies have had extraordinary success at boosting biodiesel availability and use in Iowa, and that benefits all Iowans,” said Grant Kimberley, executive director of the IBB.

“Biodiesel provides thousands of jobs, supports our struggling farm economy, and benefits the environment.”

About half of Iowa’s onroad diesel supply contains at least 11 percent biodiesel, increasing availability to Iowans, and the state remains the top producer of the renewable fuel, proponents say.
