Soy diesel uses a homegrown resource that helps the economy by keeping more energy dollars inside Minnesota and helps the environment by reducing harmful emissions. A big boost to farmers across the state, use of soy diesel creates additional markets for soy oil produced in Minnesota.
SMMPA began using biodiesel fuel long before mandates were issued on its use. Currently, diesel fuel containing at least 2% soy oil (biodiesel) is being used in all member-owned stationary engines under contract to the Agency. Eight SMMPA members are using a blend of diesel fuel containing10% to 20% biodiesel.
