Checkoff funds RFS studies

In response to the ongoing debate about biodiesel as part of the proposed federal Renewable Fuel Standard, the United Soybean Board and soybean checkoff helped fund the National Biodiesel Board's Sustainability Analysis and Awareness project. This effort helps to dispel myths about this valuable homegrown, renewable fuel. Soybean oil remains the dominant feedstock for U.S. biodiesel production, and USB funds a large portion of biodiesel research and promotion through NBB. To conduct its analyses, NBB assembled a panel of experts to address the science and methodologies being used to implement the RFS2. According to the analyses, biodiesel has a positive effect on the environment, has no impact on actual land use trends and remains a significant part of the soybean industry's strong sustainability track record. Additionally, the analyses reinforced the facts that soybeans aren't grown for fuel and U.S. soy exports continue to increase.
