Advanced biofuels promoted by the US Environmental Protection Agency

The US Environmental Protection Agency has proposed lower volumes of renewable fuels for 2014, 2015 and 2016, after evaluating the availability of qualifying renewable fuels and considering the market’s ability to make the changes in production, infrastructure, and relative pricing necessary to boost the use of renewable fuels.

But as Richard Lilleystone, Gazasia CEO, notes, “The EPA may have cut overall target volumes, but its proposals should ensure continued growth in advanced biofuels, such as biomethane, which have a lower greenhouse gas emissions profile than conventional biofuels. And the agency also proposes increasing the required volume of biomass-based diesel in 2015, 2016, and 2017 as well as maintaining the opportunity for growth in other advanced biofuels, which we see as encouraging and supportive of this expanding industry.”
