69M gallons of US biodiesel produced in Nov., 994M gallons YTD

By The National Biodiesel Board | January 10, 2013

The EPA said Thursday that 69 million gallons of biodiesel were produced in November, reporting year-to-date production of more than 994 million gallons through the end of November.

Biodiesel production is reported under the EPA's biomass-based diesel category in the renewable fuel standard. The EPA numbers show a total of almost 87 million gallons of biomass-based diesel for the month of November, but that figure also includes renewable diesel production.

With December production figures still pending for 2012, the biodiesel industry is on pace to again produce more than 1 billion gallons of advanced biofuel during the year, supporting more than 64,000 jobs across the country. Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel is the first and only EPA-designated advanced biofuel that's produced on a commercial scale across the U.S. It is produced in nearly every state in the country and is used in existing diesel engines without modification.

    What's even more notable is the generation of the first cellulosic diesel (D7) RINs - a little over 1,000 gallons worth - in November 2012. Another good sign for the industry.
