Biodiesel is a clean-burning alternative fuel produced from animal fat or vegetable oil that can be used in a pure form or blended with petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is currently being produced in biodiesel refineries of various sizes across the United States and in Europe. The trend has been toward larger biodiesel refineries capable of producing 30 to 60 million gallons of biodiesel annually.
