RFS Volumes: Defining the Future of Advanced BioFuels?

EPA is considering unprecedented changes to its annual process of setting targets for the Renewable Fuel Standard. This could have a major impact on investment in advanced biofuels, just as they are reaching commercialization. On Tuesday, November 19, 2013, Third Way hosted a panel discussion on this EPA proposal and its implications for an economically and environmentally important emerging industry. Copies of the presentations by our panelists and selected media coverage of the event are available below.
