Renewable Diesel: A Fuel That May Just Change Your Crop Rotation

Renewable diesel isn’t the same as biodiesel because it’s made from a variety of oil seed crops and it’s not blended with fossil fuel. Why does any of this matter to American farmers?

So far, some of the biggest names in fossil fuels are on board.
