The Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance reports biodiesel consumption in Wisconsin is growing, based on their analysis of data compiled by the Wisconsin Office of Energy Independence.

In 2007, the Wisconsin state government and the University of Wisconsin system increased their biodiesel consumption 842 percent over the previous year. In 2006, 6,404 gallons of B20 were used; in 2007, 60,331 gallons of B20 were used. The state government and UW system also purchased 4,970 gallons of B5 in 2007, up from zero gallons in 2006. The Wisconsin Office of Energy Independence estimates that consumption of B100 for 2007 totaled 809,000 gallons.

The consumption data was published in the "Biodiesel Basics No. 6," a series of weekly fact sheets compiled by the Wisconsin Bio Industry Alliance. The alliance is a diverse group of businesses, environmental groups, as well as statewide and local organizations that have joined forces to build public and legislative awareness of the bio industry in Wisconsin.
