In Illinois, Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG) are celebrating the passage of the organization’s B20 Legislation, sponsored by State Senator Patrick Joyce (D–Essex).

Illinois’ commitment to the biodiesel industry has created over 7,500 clean energy jobs in Illinois and has generated $1.6 billion in household income to families across Illinois. In addition to these tremendous boons to Illinois’ agricultural economy, biodiesel also offers immense health and environmental benefits. Biodiesel reduces lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 86%, and once the bill is fully implemented it is expected to reduce GHG emissions by nearly 200 thousand tons.
