On December 2, the Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) released a set of principles to inform low carbon fuels policy, approved by the Association’s diverse membership.

This document is the culmination of a year-long effort to find consensus amongst ABFA’s members on concepts policymakers may consider as the U.S. moves toward a lower-carbon economy and works to reduce carbon emissions from the liquid transportation fuel sector to mitigate the effects of climate change. As the cover letter to this document notes, this set of principles is particularly notable as it is endorsed by some of the largest petroleum refining companies in the world, as well as some of the largest advanced biofuels producers in the United States and abroad.

Michael McAdams, President of the Advanced Biofuels Association, said of the document, “These principles position our Association to engage at any level with any group working on the global issue of climate change.  It gives us a sound, realistic, and focused set of principles and guardrails to pursue a constructive conversation on what policies might be adopted to reach the U.S.’s carbon reduction goals.”

Biofuels industry stakeholders call on EPA to remove RFS regulatory barriers

Member companies and organizations from the Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA), the Coalition to Address Removal of Regulatory Impediments (CARRI), and others with interest in deploying sustainable fuels sent a letter to Assistant EPA Administrator Bill Wehrum to urge the Agency to finalize provisions in the proposed Regulatory Enhancement Growth Support (REGS) rule to remove unnecessary regulatory barriers for the production of certain advanced biofuels.

Study shows available advanced biofuels feedstocks can pace biofuel demand through 2030

Growing demand for biomass based diesel advanced biofuels can be met with projected supply of lipid feedstocks through 2030 without encroaching on food resources, finds a new study from LMC International, commissioned by the Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA).
