Interesting, I didn't know ....

 

https://www.agriculture.com/markets/newswire/renewable-fuel-companies-edge-out-some-refiners-on-feed...

I didn't know the oil companies had started to hedge their bets.  But I won't think tallow would make very good biodiesel unless you can run it in the South.  Its cloud point is way too high for anywhere but Florida in the winter.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for  Big O... whoops make that the “refiners” because the can’t compete?    Sorry but I’m not on that page. I’m sure they will manage to scrape by somehow

Rick, 

You might check out bio fuel refineries where they run it through a  cracking process just like crude oil. Several being built.

Comes out as true diesel chemically identical.

Thanks to a packing company we are seeing some promise out of the failed switchgrass plant here locally.
