Wal-Mart has been out searching for biodiesel provider longer than we knew

Earlier this month, we caught up with Wal-Mart's search for a way to use biodiesel in its shipping fleet. While there's been no announcement from Arkansas, I found a mention in the Seattle Times of the retail giant's ongoing biodiesel quest. My earlier post focused on the Kansas Soybean Association's visit to Wal-Mart HQ this past October, but sometimes Wal-Mart doesn't wait to be called on. This Seattle Times' story says that Wal-Mart visited with biodiesel producer Imperium Renewables after Hurricane Katrina last year. We can only hope they liked what they saw, and will be taking steps to move to biodiesel in the near future.
