MEDELLIN, Colombia (ICIS)--The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said on Friday that 110m gallons (416m litres) of biodiesel was produced in April.

Biodiesel production has exceeded targets under the renewable fuel standard (RFS) for two consecutive years, according to the National Biodiesel Board (NBB).

With the April numbers, year-to-date biodiesel production stands at just less than 369m gallons.

Biodiesel is an alternative fuel, produced from renewable resources. The most commonly used feedstocks are rapeseed, soy and palm oil.
