Biodiesel Supply and Consumption in the Short-Term Energy Outlook

April 1, 2009

Introduction

The historical biodiesel consumption data published in the EIA Monthly Energy Review March 2009 edition were revised to account for imports and exports. Table 10.4 of the Monthly Energy Review was expanded to display biodiesel imports, exports, stocks, stock change, and consumption. Similar revisions were made in the April 2009 edition of the Short‐Term Energy Outlook (STEO). Biodiesel production, net imports, and consumption history and forecasts have been added to the STEO Custom Table Builder, and biodiesel production and consumption are now reported in STEO Table 8. A review of the data sources for biodiesel production, trade (imports and exports), and consumption is presented in this report.
