Biodiesel Basics #12 – Enormous Global Potential for Biodiesel

Categories: Uncategorized

Biodiesel, a renewable fuel made right here in Wisconsin, has enormous global potential. Here are a few facts from a report from UW-Madison’s Center for Sustainability and Global Environment:


  • Calculations suggest that the potential biodiesel production globally can amount to over 13 billion gallons annually, an increase of twenty-fold over current levels.


  • The top-five potential producers – of which the United States is one – account for over 80 percent of that total, suggesting the possibility for huge economic growth for these nations.


  • Over 12 billion gallons of the biodiesel produced by these nations could be sold profitably in the international community, helping other nations reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
