State soybean farmers are encouraging Minnesotans to think clean air, think biodiesel

Minnesota soybean farmers are launching a biodiesel clean air advertising campaign illustrating how soy-based biodiesel improves air quality by reducing harmful emissions from vehicles.

“We want to open the consumer’s eyes to the reality of emissions from vehicles that run on petroleum. In fact, vehicle emissions are the largest source of air pollution in Minnesota,” states Bill Zurn, a Becker County farmer and Minnesota Soybean New Uses Action Team chair. “There is a positive message here in the use of alternative fuels.”»
