A new biodiesel terminal has opened in Des Moines. This is Iowa’s second biodiesel terminal; the other one is located in Clear Lake.

The terminal is owned by Tulsa-based petroleum pipeline company Magellan Midstream Partners, and cost $2.5 million.

This comes shortly after the EPA’s approval of an increase in the biodiesel mandate from 1 billion-gallon to 1.28 billion-gallon for next year.
