Products Using Soybean Oil
Soybean oil is by far the most popular component for biodiesel. It is not as efficient as rapeseed, and does not have special qualities of the sunflower oil, but the production volumes more than justify its popularity.
Soybean oil is used in high-quality animal feeds — mostly for birds, cats, dogs, and other pets. Some manufacturers of high-end horse feeds use soybean to provide animals with natural proteins and fats, although most use soybean pulp or meal instead.
Industrial Use of Soybean Oil
However, soybean oil dominates the biodiesel industry. According to the 2019 industry reports, over 50% of biodiesel produced in EU and US is soybean oil biodiesel. And while the production costs are relatively high compared to rapeseed, soybean offers much higher yield per acre, and bulk soybean oil price is not much higher than rapeseed. Most soybean oil suppliers produce oil specifically for the biodiesel production.
Sending and Transporting of Soybean Oil
The minimum order volume is 22 tons. When ordering in bulk, crude soybean oil price is lower, however, orders over 2000 tons may require additional time to complete.
