Trucks traveling throughout Lincoln, Omaha and along the interstate out of North Platte will be spreading the message promoting biodiesel.
The Nebraska Soybean Board launched a truck side campaign to raise awareness about a homegrown market and encouraging Nebraskans to ask for it and make the switch to this clean, renewable fuel source.

The truck side campaign features eye-catching graphics and messages highlighting the many advantages of biodiesel, including lower emissions, improved fuel lubricity and increased performance. Biodiesel is made from domestically produced, renewable resources such as soybean oil and offers numerous advantages over traditional diesel fuel. Not only is it better for the environment, but it also supports local farmers and boosts the state’s economy, adding over 70 cents per bushel to the value of soybeans and a 4% reduction in overall diesel fuel prices.
“We’re proud to sponsor this important campaign and help raise awareness about one of the many versatile uses of soy,” said Wesley Wach, Nebraska Soybean demand and utilization coordinator. “We believe that by promoting the use of a product made with Nebraska soybean oil, we can help reduce our dependence on foreign oil and support our local farmers and communities.”
Biodiesel blends can be purchased at over 40 retail locations in Nebraska and is available for producers to have delivered on-farm. Contact your local fuel supplier about using a blended fuel in your operation.
The Nebraska Soybean Board is dedicated to supporting the state’s soybean farmers and promoting the use of soy-based products, including biodiesel. Learn more about biodiesel at biodieselNE.com.
