Quality biodiesel could mean doubled production soon

National Biodiesel Board executive director Joe Jobe told Illinois Farm Bureau directors that biodiesel production in 2006 should be 150 million gallons, double the 2005 amount. The catch is that this biodiesel has to be quality stuff, man. Low-quality fuel, like the thing in Minnesota with poor quality biodiesel, could discourage consumers from embracing the fuel as heartily as they otherwise would.
This just makes sense. The alternative fuel market is getting pretty crowded, with hybrids and electric vehicles often targeting the same demographic. Any perceived or real weakness in a technology or fuel choice could have lasting effect on the market. Glad there a National Biodiesel Board to tell us these things. [Source: Illinois Farm Bureau.
