POLICY BRIEFING: The Future of Advanced Biofuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard

Posted February 24, 2015 at 2:23pm

 CQ Roll Call’s forum 
The Future of Advanced Biofuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard
 will look at the record of biodiesel and other advanced biofuels under the RFS, debate the success and merits of the program with members of Congress and look ahead to the future as the industry anticipates the EPA’s announcement of new volume requirements.

Join us for our policy breakfast briefing and hear from policy experts on both sides of the RFS issue. Agenda to include:


Since it was created in 2005, the Renewable Fuel Standard requires that transportation fuel sold in the United States contains a minimum volume of renewable fuel. In the ten years since the regulation was enacted, the program has expanded to include diesel and has increased the amount required to be blended over time. But has the program been a success? During this keynote, lawmakers will discuss the merits of the program and what’s next for the RFS.
