National Biodiesel Day
March 18 marked National Biodiesel Day and the celebration of biofuels. Missouri Soybeans biofuels and new uses director Matt Amick says the occasion celebrated Missouri’s role in commercializing and producing biodiesel, which has impacted society as a whole. Amick also states that checkoff-funded research in the 1990s kick-started biodiesel production and demand. Biodiesel impacts the industry by providing a market for soybean oil and adds to the availability of soybean meal. Learn more at mosoy.org.
