Andretti INDYCAR racing towards more sustainable fuel sources

The intersection between agbioscience and sustainability extends across many industries, including motorsports. Andretti INDYCAR has taken a step towards embracing more sustainable fuel sources by joining the B20 Club of Indiana, a collaboration with the Indiana Soybean Alliance and American Lung Association. The use of biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel – which are made from soybean oil and other renewable feedstocks – aligns with efforts to promote sustainable agriculture, helps reduce carbon emissions that impact our climate and health and highlights the significant role that farmers play in producing renewable fuels.
