Biodiesel is the alternative fuel of choice in much of Europe, and its popularity is growing in Brazil, Canada, Argentina, Indonesia and the United States. Our biodiesel is produced through a patented process known as transesterification, in which vegetable oils are heated with alcohol in the presence of a catalyst to yield mono-alkyl esters (biodiesel) and glycerin.
ADM’s biodiesel products include Connediesel®, Connester® and crude and refined glycerin. Our Connediesel brand is a high-quality biodiesel that complies with EU standards. Our canola methyl esters also are fully compliant with EU and North American standards.
