Iowa Biodiesel

The Iowa biodiesel industry provides many benefits to the state, in the form of green jobs, economic activity and energy security leadership.
With production capacity of about 400 million gallons per year, Iowa is the nation's leading state in biodiesel production.  As a heartland state, many of the state’s plants use soybean oil – an abundant local resource – to make biodiesel, but other renewable agricultural co-products and byproducts are also used, such as beef tallow, inedible corn oil and recycled cooking grease.
