Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)
NBB supports the federal
Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which requires transportation fuel sold in the United States to include annually set volumes of renewable fuels.
RFS Small Refiner Exemptions
NBB opposes retroactive
exemptions, which reduce RFS biomass-based diesel volumes by hundreds of millions of gallons.
NBB works with federal agencies, such
as USDA, to highlight biodiesel's innovative role in addressing carbon emissions in the transportation and agriculture sectors.
Tax & Clean Energy Policy
NBB advocates for a federal tax credit
that incentivizes fuel blenders to include biodiesel and renewable diesel in the U.S. transportation fuel market.
Several USDA programs help build markets for advanced biofuels
like biodiesel through education and producer support payments.
NBB’s Fair Trade Coalition supports free and
fair trade and continues to fight unfair trade practices in the biodiesel market.
