Biodiesel leaders head to DC for tax credit, RFS push

June 6, 2012 |

In Washington DC, more than 120 biodiesel leaders will meet with White House officials and members of Congress to call for the extension of the expired biodiesel tax incentive and to urge the Obama Administration to quickly finalize the EPA’s proposal to grow biodiesel volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard next year.

Industry leaders will specifically be asking the Obama Administration to increase the biodiesel volume requirement under the RFS to 1.28 billion gallons in 2013, up from 1 billion gallons this year. In late 2011, the Obama Administration delayed the decision despite strong bipartisan support and support from the EPA and USDA.
