Biodiesel and Feedstocks

Valley Pacific is a proud supporter of biodiesel and the positive impacts it has on sustainability in the US today. Today, biodiesel and renewable diesel are produced from a variety of fats and oils, referred to as feedstocks. Feedstocks come to the industry as both first use products (soybean oil or canola oil) and second use byproducts or wastes (cooking oil, animal fats, and other wastes and residues).

When growing soybeans for meal and oil, a farmer is now producing feed, food, and fuel. Today, farmers are producing more food in the form of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, on less land than ever before. With an increased demand for soybean oil, it begs the question: by turning soybean oil into fuel, are we limiting it as a potential food source?

The simple answer is no. The opposite is true, in fact it helps maintain the domestic demand for soy oil for biodiesel has helped keep soy protein affordable, helping maintain global access to sustainable US soy protein and supporting a more sustainable global animal protein production system.

Biodiesel Success Story in St. Louis

The use of biodiesel has and is helping thousands of fleets and motorist reduce carbon emissions. B20 is the year-round fuel choice for Lambert St. Louis International airport and has been since 1990. This has resulted in cleaner skies and cost savings in St. Louis.

“The use of biodiesel here has resulted in a cost savings. Because biodiesel has more lubricity, we’ve had a cutdown in the number of times we are cleaning and replacing injectors and fuel injection pumps. It’s great to have American fuel support American jobs and the American economy”- Michael Bernich, Fleet Manager, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
