President calls for greater biodiesel use at Advancing Renewable Energy event

By | November 10, 2006
President George W. Bush emphasized how renewable fuels, like biodiesel, can help America. He made his remarks in St. Louis at the Advancing Renewable Energy conference, hosted by the USDA and U.S. DOE in October. The DaimlerChrysler Dodge Ram B5 factory fill was announced in conjunction with that event two days earlier.

In his remarks at the event, the president said America is too dependent on foreign oil. "We've got to change our habits if we want to remain the economic leader of the world," he said.

Bush also described his May 2005 visit to a biodiesel plant in Virginia. He saw soybean oil processed into American-made biodiesel that also boosted the local economy and benefited the environment.

"It makes a lot of sense for us to continue to invest in biodiesel technologies to make the production process even more efficient," Bush said at the conference. "Technology will enable us to be able to say we can grow our economy and protect our environment at the same time."
