We're calling on all biodiesel supporters to make your voice heard by writing a letter asking the Administration to approve a reasonable volume increase for biodiesel under the Renewable Fuel Standard next year.
The letter is posted at the right of this page. Simply fill in your name and contact information, and the letter will be sent via email to the appropriate federal officials. Biodiesel is the first and only EPA-designated Advanced Biofuel to reach 1 billion gallons of annual production, with commercial-scale production across the country. The industry has exceeded RFS volume requirements each year and is on pace to do so again this year, with projected production of at least 1.7 billion gallons. This is an incredible renewable fuels success story.
However, the Administration has proposed a 2014 RFS volume of 1.28 billion gallons, a sharp reduction from this year's projected production and a potentially devastating proposal for the future of our industry. It is critical that we make our voice heard as the Administration proposes and finalizes this rule.
• How to send the letter:
Simply enter your information into the boxes provided including; your first and last name, address, and e-mail. Click the SEND button and your information will be automatically inserted into the template letter and sent to administrators at the Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Management and Budget, The White House Office of Energy and Climate Policy, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
• What’s the purpose of the letter?
The EPA’s draft 2014 volume proposal is moving through the regulatory process. Our industry has proven it has the capacity to continue its successful growth well beyond the proposed level of 1.28 billion gallons, and it is imperative that the biodiesel industry make its voice heard to show the real benefits of increasing biodiesel production.
