This week, the B20 club recently hosted a biodiesel event at the ISA Lombard office. Attendees included B20 members and fleet partners, who learned how to continue their work to create and utilize higher and higher blends of biofuels, a net positive for participants' checkbooks and the health of our environment.
USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service recently announced a new plant protection and quarantine program for containerized soybeans and commercial samples negotiated with the Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance.
