    A 40-year-old man was caught in the act while authorities say he stole biodiesel from two Hunterdon County businesses.

Frandsen Clervoyant, of Irvington, matched the suspect’s description and was found behind a Route 22 business stealing more biodiesel a short time later, Readington Township Police said. Clervoyant was arrested and charged with theft of moveable property before being released pending a future court appearance.

    Legislation designed to lead Illinois down a path to a clean energy economy is being applauded by farming groups. The Consumer and Climate First Act was recently introduced in the General Assembly, and includes numerous proposals to lead the state to a clean energy economy. The Consumers and Climate First Act proposes to “decarbonize fuels during the transition to electrification, and establishes minimum biodiesel standards (B20) for diesel sold in Illinois to smooth the transition to an electrified transportation sector.” “It is important that we have that policy on the books to show the rest of the country that Illinois means what it says about biodiesel and we are going to go forward and make sure we are a leader on the topic,” said Andrew Larson, director of public policy with Illinois Soybean Growers. “We are the No. 1 producing soybean state in the country, the No. 2 producing corn state, and we are in the top 5 or 6 in population, and that puts us in a position to lead on the use of biodiesel blends.” The legislation also...
    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The president and auto industry maintain the nation is on the cusp of a gigantic shift to electric vehicles and away from liquid-fueled cars, but biofuels producers and some of their supporters in Congress aren’t buying it. They argue that now is the time to increase sales of ethanol and biodiesel, not abandon them. To help address climate change, President Joe Biden has proposed an infrastructure plan that includes billions of dollars to pay for 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations, electrify public vehicles and enhance the nation’s power grid. These moves follow initiatives in California and other states to mandate electric vehicle sales and a goal by General Motors to shift production fully to electric vehicles by 2035. Yet any shift from liquid-fueled cars to electric would be gradual, given the fleet of 279 million petroleum-powered vehicles now on U.S. roads. And producers of corn-based ethanol and soy-based biodiesel argue that biofuels will be needed for the foreseeable future. The government’s promotion of electric vehicles comes as the U.S. works to reduce carbon emissions...

    A local heating oil company has agreed to pay $450,000 to settle allegations that it was selling below-quality fuel that caused problems in heating systems. On Wednesday, March 3, Worcester-based Peterson Oil resolved claims it violated the False Claims Act as part of a state contract, according to This Week In Worcester. The claims were pressed by State Attorney General Maura Healey’s office. The resolution requires Peterson to pay $450,000 and improve its record-keeping. Peterson had two contracts with Massachusetts to deliver fuel that contained 5 percent biodiesel by volume. The claim alleged Peterson was delivering fuel that contained 40 percent or more biodiesel by volume. Several state entities complained that the fuel had damaged their heating systems. 
    Missouri ranks second in the nation in biodiesel production with seven plants in the state producing roughly 200 million gallons of renewable fuel annually that can be blended into diesel to reduce emissions and provide alternate markets for farmers’ crops, according to the Missouri Soybean Association. With the present capacity to expand that output to at least 250 million gallons a year — and with the state’s $2.2 billion soybean industry suffering a 30-percent decline in sales because of trade disputes with China — yet another attempt will be made to follow virtually every other state in the nation in establishing biodiesel fuel minimums (BFMs) when Missouri lawmakers begin their 2021 session on Jan. 6. Senate Bill 96, pre-filed by Sen. Denny Hoskins, R-Warrensburg, is the 2021 version of the ‘Missouri Made Fuels Act’ that he filed during last session that may have been adopted had the COVID-19 outbreak not forced an early adjournment. Under the act, all diesel fuel sold or offered for sale in Missouri for use in internal combustion engines shall contain at...
    By Julie Ingwersen CHICAGO, Jul 31 (.) – US soybean futures rose on Friday for the second session, buoyed by soybean oil futures, which were up nearly 2% on demand from the biodiesel fuel sector oil-based, operators said. * Meanwhile, corn and wheat futures also closed higher. * November soybeans on the Chicago exchange rose 4.25 cents Friday at $ 8.9250 per bushel. The contract increased about 1% in the month. * December corn rose to $ 3.27 per bushel and September wheat climbed 1.25 cents to $ 5.3125 per bushel. * Soybean was helped by monthly data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showing that the amount of soybean oil used for biodiesel in May increased to 778 million pounds, from 672 million the previous month. * Corn futures ended the month with a nearly 7% drop, as the improvement in the climate in the Midwest during July increased the probability of an excellent harvest in the United States, which offset the support provided by new sales of grains to China.

    By Roberto Samora SÃO PAULO (.) – Cattalini, the operator of almost 70% of Brazil’s soybean oil exports from its facilities in the port of Paraguaná, plans to increase shipments of the product by more than 25% this year, in view of that Argentina’s capacity has been affected by a drought. The negative impact of COVID-19 on demand for Brazilian diesel also reduced the need for biodiesel, increasing the exportable surplus of soybean oil, the main raw material for biofuels, Cattalini commercial manager Lucas Cézar Guzen said in an interview. with .. “Several stars were aligned so that we could export this volume,” he said, noting that the company’s results indicate soybean oil shipments higher than those projected by the Brazilian Association of Vegetable Oil Industries (Abiove) for the country. The executive expects Brazil’s main multinationals and producer cooperatives to export 850,000 tons of soybean oil in 2020 through the Cattalini facilities, compared to 672,000 in 2019. “We will export more than last year. Cattalini already shipped 630,000 tons in the period from January to June. And I have a...
    By The Associated Press Des Moines Register. July 4, 2020. Dear Iowa: Listen to public health experts and put on a damn mask You’re on your own. That remains the message to states from President Donald Trump as the novel coronavirus spreads like wildfire across the country. From leaving states to find their own ventilators and protective equipment to not providing clear guidance to industries, the absence of federal leadership is stunning. That leaves Iowans looking to Gov. Kim Reynolds for direction as hundreds of us test positive each day and more than 700 have died. Her message: Take personal responsibility. She has refused to require face coverings for businesses, state-licensed workers, schools or the general public. She has left each county, city, school district, business and individual to decide what to do. Numerous governors, including Republican governors, have required face coverings in public. Of course Reynolds should do the same. But she apparently isn’t listening to science these days. What should Iowans do? Cover your mouth and nose. Wear a mask, scarf or whatever you have for a face...
