Renewable Energy Group has recently applauded the EPA report on the predicted increase of the 2013 Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2) renewable volume to 1.28 BG.
According to Renewable Energy Group’s President & CEO, Daniel J. Oh, this declaration ensures confidence across the biodiesel supply chain, in addition to supporting green development jobs and improving the energy independence of the country. The company has expressed its gratitude and applauded President Obama and his administration for their due diligence and public support while co-operating with the biodiesel industry for implementing sustainable growth. The efficient operation of RFS2 for biodiesel has been reaffirmed. RFS2 will further operate as stipulated.
Ever since the biodiesel requirements were exercised under RFS2 in 2010, the biodiesel industry in the U.S. has become a renowned supplier of increased quantities of advanced biofuel for petroleum refiners and distributors.
Oh envisions that the REG and biodiesel industry will exploit the American agriculture and food production’s by-products, waste, and recycled fats and oils to comply wuth the 2013 RFS2 number.
