National Biodiesel Board is on the sustainable wagon

Following this years NBB and Sustainable Biodiesel conferences, and a joint press release announcing a "Sustainability Task Force", the National Biodiesel Board is stepping up their efforts to put forth the environmental benefits of made-in-the-USA soybean based biodiesel.
Highlights of the Feb. 27th press release:

"Our recently established Sustainability Task Force is working to ensure that the U.S. biodiesel industry continues to protect the environment, while producing jobs and reducing dependence on foreign oil."
"In the United States, more than 80% of estimated 2007 biodiesel production came from domestic soybean oil."
"The USDA reports that U.S. acreage for crop production has not increased since 1959. Major land use changes in the United States that would endanger environmentally sensitive lands are not expected due to biofuels"
"The United States is the largest exporter of soybeans in the world, making the importation of soybeans from countries with non-sustainable agricultural practices less likely."
"According to U.S. Census data, the country currently has the equivalent of more than 400 million gallons of soybean oil sitting in inventory."
