Federal policy is critical to our industry's growth, and it is imperative that elected leaders routinely hear from the biodiesel community about our industry’s strong public policy benefits and its positive impact on the economy, the environment and U.S. energy security. These webpages and accompanying documents are aimed at empowering you to do that. Talk about the jobs and economic activity your company is creating, and make it clear that strong federal policies such as the RFS and the biodiesel tax incentive are helping to make it happen.
