The article focuses on the development of soy-based biodiesel products in the U.S. Biodiesel is produced from soy-bean by the removal of glycerin from the oil and can be used in any concentration with petroleum-based diesel to include little modifications for most engines. Biodiesel derived from soybeans offers a potential of benefits which include low industrial cost, environmental-friendly and the derivation of fuel from renewable resources.
