    HOUSTON — Biodiesel production has soared in recent months, although concerns about fraud in the market remain.

    Reported production of biodiesel, which is made from discarded animal fats, used cooking oil and other materials, jumped 74 percent in October, compared with production in October 2012, according to the most recent survey data collected by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

    Production in July, August and September also jumped by at least 40 percent compared with the same months in 2012, the agency reported. Texas is the nation’s leading producer of biodiesel, with a capacity to make 408 million gallons of the fuel each year.
