Bind it or blend it: Accelerating the renewable jet fuel market

July 20, 2016 |

We would like you to consider the proposition that alcohol-to-jet fuels, known as ATJ to the 3-letter acronym enthusiasts, deserve two RINs. and two credits under the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard. For cellulosic jet fuels, two gallons under the cellulosic waiver credit provision and two gallons under the cellulosic production tax credits. And I’ll explain […]
