From fries to fuel
In April, Renewable Energy Group started a new campaign to clarify some misconceptions about biodiesel. The “Food Then Fuel” campaign is an attempt to separate biodiesel from the lump category of biofuels that includes ethanol, proponal, butanol and biobutanal among others.
REG has said critics of the biofuel industry have capitalized on the confusion and have tried to implicate that biodiesel takes away from the food supply and contributes to higher food prices at supermarkets.
“In reality, biodiesel is playing a vital role in strengthening America’s food security and reducing pressures on food prices,” REG wrote in its white paper. “Rather than competing with food, biodiesel production applies a ‘Food Then Fuel’ approach by adding economic value for food industry by products and sending economic signals to the market to produce more.”
