Tax policies play a key role in supporting growth of the U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry, just as they do for other clean energy industries. The biodiesel tax incentive helps producers create jobs and contribute to state and federal carbon reduction goals for the transportation sector. In December 2019, Congress extended the biodiesel tax incentive through 2022, providing the industry forward-looking stability in tax policy.

With the start of the 117th Congress, there are many new Representatives and Senators as well as policy staff. Educating Washington policy influencers is an important part of maintaining policy support for the industry. You can use this form to identify your elected officials and build a personal relationship with them. You can send a ready-made note -- or personalize it with information about your company.

As our members and industry supporters communicate with Washington policy makers, the media, and the public, NBB provides the resources to the right and works with them to amplify these points:

  • With plants and markets across the country, the U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry supports 65,000 U.S. jobs and pays $2.5 billion in annual wages. The industry generates more than $17 billion in economic activity each year.
  • Every 100 million gallons of production supports 3,200 jobs and $780 million in economic opportunity for farm workers, producers, and distributors.
  • Biodiesel is a better, cleaner fuel. It is 74 percent less carbon intensive than petroleum diesel on average, and it significantly reduces particulate and hydrocarbon emissions that are tied to asthma and cardiovascular disease.
  • Biodiesel producers use a variety of raw materials – including recycled cooking oil, animal fats and plant oils – providing value to underutilized resources.
