Record Fact: Biodiesel Production Sets Annual & Monthly Records

December 2013 was an historic and record month for biodiesel production. A monthly record of 135 million gallons was produced in December, capping off a record year in 2013.

Biodiesel production topped 1.3 billion gallons in 2013, up about 35% from 2012 and smashing the previous annual record.  More growth in biodiesel production is fully possible since existing biodiesel capacity can produce more than 2 billion gallons per year.

Biodiesel is a domestic fuel, with a strongly positive energy balance, unlike gasoline. As such it is good for our economy and environment.
