Iowa's Biodiesel production sets a record


Iowa's biodiesel production set a new record this year after a very difficult 2010.

Ten of Iowa's 13 biodiesel plants operating this year produced a combined 169 million gallons.

With plants restarting throughout the year, the rate of biodiesel production in December increased to even higher levels.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association says Iowa is the leader in renewable fuels production, with 41 ethanol refineries capable of producing 3.7 billion gallons annually.
