Concerns about global warming and the U.S. dependence on foreign oil are driving a historic shift from fossil fuels to biofuels and other types of renewable energy. Now more than ever it is important to focus on the benefits of a sustainable, local model for biodiesel in the United States in order to maintain local energy and economic security.
Biodiesel that is created and used locally can benefit the community in many ways:
Increase local economic security by creating and securing jobs in feedstock, production and distribution.
Increase the availability of locally produced renewable energy to maintain true energy security.
Reduce the negative impact on our environment both locally and globally.
Conserve energy by reducing the need to move fuel and even biodiesel feedstock thousands of miles.
