Renewable Fuels

AGP markets environmentally friendly, soy methyl ester products that are shipped via truck and rail from production facilities in Algona and Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, and St. Joseph, Missouri.


AGP’s biodiesel provides clean power from a renewable resource — soybeans. Available year round, biodiesel increases fuel lubricity, boosts cetane values, and burns cleaner than traditional diesel fuels. Biodiesel readily blends with diesel in any ratio 2% and higher.

Benefits of Biodiesel

  • Reduces most regulated emissions compared to diesel in conventional engines
  • Improves lubricity of diesel fuel at levels as low as 2% blends
  • Can be used in existing diesel engines with little to no modifications
  • Biodegradable
  • Easy to use
  • Up to 47% reduction in particulate matter
  • Up to 67% reduction in unburned hydrocarbons
  • Up to 48% reduction in carbon monoxide
  • Reduces life cycle greenhouse gas emissions by over 57%

Methyl ester solvents are superior replacements for petroleum-based formulations for products such as detergents, cosmetics, lubricants, and hand cleaners.

Benefits of Bio-Based Solvents

  • Environmentally friendly product
  • Biodegradable
  • Easy to use
  • Replaces traditional chlorinated and petroleum solvents
  • High flash point – safer to handle and store


Spray adjuvants are used in agronomy products to enhance the effectiveness of agricultural chemicals on crops. SoyGold AGSOY ME methylated seed oil is an all-natural adjuvant that can be safely used on U.S. farms. Fully biodegradable, AGSOY ME provides excellent cuticle penetration in delivering a broad spectrum of herbicides over a wide variety of geographical locations and weather conditions.

Benefits of Adjuvants

  • Improved drift control
  • Reduced impact on the environment
  • Easy to use
  • Improves the contact of the spray droplet on the plant surface
  • Excellent penetrating agent through waxy surfaces

Crude Glycerin

Crude glycerin is a co-product generated from the production of biodiesel. Soy-based glycerin is used in a variety of products including health care, personal care, polyols, foods, and sweeteners.

Benefits of Glycerin

  • Clear and odorless
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Easy to use
  • Improves food quality
