Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Background:

The growth of homegrown biodiesel and renewable diesel under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is an American success story. Our industry is delivering the vast majority of advanced biofuel under the RFS and we can do more. The U.S. biodiesel industry has proven that it can grow in a sustainable way to increase U.S energy security, create jobs and diversify our fuel supply.

As you continue to communicate with your Members of Congress, Washington policy makers, the media, and the public, consider using the arguments below to make your case.:

  • Higher volumes drive job creation, innovation in feedstock development and investment
  • Every 100 million gallons of increased biodiesel production supports roughly 3,200 jobs
  • Biodiesel saves diesel consumers money—it’s a cost-effective, renewable alternative fuel
  • Higher volumes and increased production levels support U.S. energy independence and energy dominance
  • Substituting biodiesel for diesel is the simplest, most effective way to immediately reduce diesel emissions, in addition to wastes in our waterways and landfills
  • Lower volumes exacerbate, not help with, the issues caused by biodiesel imports
