A new study from the National Oilseed Processors Association and the United Soybean Board says there’s been a decline in the carbon footprint of U.S. soybeans.

NOPA’s Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Katie Vassalli tells Brownfield…

“The study found U.S. soybean farmers, the processing plants and refineries reduced their carbon footprint by 19% for soybeans, 6% for soybean meal, 22% for crude soybean oil and 8% for refined soy oil from co-located refineries.”

The carbon reductions are due, in part, to the sustainable practices farmers are implementing, including no-till and cover crops and she says that translates to reductions in carbon intensity across the clean fuels industry.
