US to launch probe into Argentina, Indonesia biodiesel imports

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.
