May 23, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Written by Paul Wiseman for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--As an increasing number of refineries switch to, or at least include, processing biofuels such as green spectrum diesel (including both biodiesel and renewable diesel), the demand for feedstock crops is expected to outstrip cropland availability as soon as 2030, if not before.
