WASHINGTON - The US Commerce Department said on Thursday it was starting an investigation into imports of biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia for possible dumping and subsidization.

The department said in a statement that the US International Trade Commission was scheduled to make a preliminary decision by May 8 on whether such imports injured US producers.

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made from vegetable or animal fats, is typically blended with petroleum-based diesel and is produced in more than 30 US states, the statement said.
