Production Statistics

The biodiesel industry has steadily grown over the past decade, with plants now in nearly every state in the country. The industry reached a key milestone by producing nearly 1.1 billion gallons in 2011, making it the first EPA-designated Advanced Biofuel to reach 1 billion gallons of annual production. The industry repeated that volume in 2012 by again producing just under 1.1 billion gallons, supporting some 50,000 jobs nationwide.

In both years, biodiesel production exceeded the requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
