US Forest Service awards Strategic Biofuels a cooperative agreement under Wood Innovations Program

October 12, 2022 |

In Louisiana, the U.S. Forest Service awarded Strategic Biofuels a cooperative agreement under its Wood Innovations Program for the first phase of a multiphase project to develop a robust, auditable cloud-based system for demonstrating compliance of forestry feedstock with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Strategic Biofuels is the leader in developing negative carbon footprint renewable fuels production facilities.

The project is aimed at funding the development of a user-friendly, cost effective, and fraud-resistant gold standard tracking system that enables the forestry feedstock sector to supply the raw data that can accurately and conveniently be transmitted to the biofuel producer and validated by a third-party auditor for EPA compliance. Strategic Biofuels was selected to lead this initiative, as the company’s Louisiana Green Fuels project in Columbia, Louisiana is expected to be the first carbon negative commercial renewable fuels plant in the world using forestry feedstock. The company will lead a core team of senior leaders to execute and deliver the project including:

U.S. Forest Service will provide general oversight and forestry experience for the initiative, facilitate information sharing, and identify and coordinate opportunities for project input from stakeholders.

Weaver, one of the country’s largest providers of EPA attestation and consulting services, will bring their deep expertise in RFS compliance assurance to propose and develop reporting content and formatting, auditing protocols, and documentation methodologies.
