Biodiesel Basics #38: Biodiesel Follows Rigorous Quality Standards

Categories: General Info

Biodiesel, an environmentally friendly alternative fuel produced right here in Wisconsin, follows rigorous fuel quality standards, ensuring that it is a safe and reliable option for consumers.  Here are some facts:

  • The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) defined the voluntary standards for biodiesel in the U.S. that have been in place more than 15 years.
  • To ensure a rigorous standard, a consensus vote is needed from a committee comprised of biodiesel producers, engine equipment manufacturers, users, government agencies and consultants.
  • 32 biodiesel producers and 14 marketers across the nation have been certified under the National Biodiesel Board’s Quality Assurance Program, which guarantees that companies follow the ASTM standard.
