    Biodiesel fuels have an almost unlimited resources base for production. While the creation of biodiesel may have begun with experiments into the use of corn and soybeans, today’s technology goes far beyond that. We can use the virgin oils created by all sorts of different plants, many of which we use in our kitchens today.
