Biodiesel production is booming, and Willie Nelson, a huge biodiesel booster, is smiling. Until recently, production rarely reached the 100 million gallons per month mark or about 1 billion gallons for a full year.
By contrast, starting in April 2013, biodiesel production has been well above 100 million gallons per month for 8 straight months. In November 2013, production reached 128 million gallons.
Current biodiesel production is reaching an annualized level of 1.5 billion gallons or 50% higher than the previous annual record. The next stop in the biodiesel boom is 2 billion gallons per year!
