Celebrating National Biodiesel Day

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- More than 4,000 Iowans who have invested more than $150 million in Iowa biodiesel production are celebrating National Biodiesel Day Wednesday, by supporting a B5 requirement in our state.

A biodiesel requirement being considered in the Iowa senate calls for 5% biodiesel to be blended into all diesel fuel sold in our state beginning July 1st.

According to the Iowa Biodiesel Board, more than 6,100 Iowans are currently working in the biodiesel industry -- from raw material production and transportation services to administration and research development.
