Marathon Petroleum and Green Bison have a partnership in place where the soy oil from the Spiritwood soy crush plant will be used to make renewable fuel. Marathon Petroleum Vice President of Portfolio Optimization Reid Smith said the demand for a cleaner fuel product will keep the renewable fuels industry powered. “Diesel demand is growing around our country so renewable diesel feeds that demand growth in a cleaner way.” The partnership is designed to keep soybeans in the state where they were produced. “Some of the biodiesel and renewable diesel will be used in North Dakota to fuel tractors and trucks.”
