Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)
NBB advocates for sustainable growth of the
biodiesel market under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which requires transportation fuel sold in the United States to include annually set volumes of advanced biofuels such as biomass-based diesel.
Biodiesel Tax Incentive
NBB supports the multi-year, forward-looking extension of the $1.00-per-gallon
federal tax credit adopted by Congress because it incentivizes fuel blenders to include biodiesel and renewable diesel in the U.S. transportation fuel market.
Biodiesel Fair Trade
NBB’s Fair Trade Coalition supports fair trade in the biodiesel
market. The coalition advocates for the U.S. Commerce Department to maintain trade protections against unfairly subsidized and dumped biodiesel imports.
RFS Small Refiner Exemptions
NBB opposes retroactive exemptions, which reduce
RFS biomass-based diesel volumes by hundreds of millions of gallons every year. NBB advocates that EPA ensure the annual RFS volumes it sets are fully met even after granting exemptions.
Several USDA programs help build markets for advanced biofuels like biodiesel through
education and producer support payments. NBB advocates for annual funding of several important programs.
