Houston, 14 September (Argus) — Magellan Midstream Partners began operating a heated storage and blending terminal for biodiesel in Des Moines, Iowa.
The terminal offers B2, B5, B10 and B20 biodiesel blends of between 2-20pc biofuel mixed with diesel, and includes a 5,000 bl heated and insulated tank and associated heated and insulated pipelines to the truck rack. Biodiesel is blended as diesel is injected into transport trucks.

The company now offers biodiesel blending at terminals in 12 cities and five states.
